Accuracy in Media

ABC News had this to say about the popular vote and the Electoral College in their article on Obama’s recent comment that he could win a third term as President of the United States, as if it’s inconceivable that the Democrats won the popular vote yet lost the Electoral College:

In the podcast, Obama didn’t address whether he would have been able to surmount the obstacle that the Electoral College posed for Hillary Clinton. The Democrat failed to secure a majority of electoral votes despite winning the popular vote by millions.

Yet Obama said he’s spoken to people across the U.S. who have told him the direction he pursued “is the right one,” a sentiment he said extends even to some people “who disagreed with me.” He suggested Democrats’ failure in the election may have stemmed from the prevailing assumption that Clinton’s victory was all but assured.
