Clinton leads popular vote despite losing election



Donald Trump may have taken the presidential victory, but Hillary Clinton could still receive more votes.

As of Wednesday afternoon, hours after Clinton called Trump to concede, the former secretary of state had a lead in the popular vote, 47.7%-47.5%. She had 59,626,695 votes, according to CNN, with 92% of the expected vote counted. Trump had 59,428,493.
The totals will continue to change as absentee votes trickle in. If Clinton hangs on, she will become the first presidential candidate since Al Gore in 2000 to win the popular vote but lose the election.
