Losing by the numbers.

Numbers don’t lie. They are not fake or a hoax.

2 is more than 1; 3 is more than 2; 4 is more than 3.

That is a mathematical fact not subject to debate.

Hope you can, and will, follow the science here.

Political elections are decided by numbers; specifically, by the number of ballots cast.

President Donald J. Trump says the 74,196,153 votes he received in the 2020 presidential election are the most votes any incumbent president has ever received.

That is a fact—a rare truth uttered by the president.

However, President-Elect Joe Biden received 81,255,933 votes in that same election—that is 7,059,780 more votes than President Trump received making him the “winner” of the election.

That is a fact—a truth supported by a host of federal agencies, federal and state law enforcement officials, and even by a “few” of the president’s political allies.

Here is another fact: in addition to Joe Biden running against President Trump in the 2020 election, there were an additional 34 candidates from across the country representing a host of other political parties or ideologies who ran against the president.

That is, I suspect, the most opposition candidates challenging any incumbent president.

These 34 candidates received 2,481,109 votes against Trump. There was also an additional 169,000-plus write-in votes cast against the president.

This is a fact: 9,708,889 more people in the 2020 election voted against Trump than voted for him.

This is yet another fact: in the 2016 presidential election President Trump received 62,979,636 votes while Hilary Clinton received 65,844,610 votes—a loss margin of 2,864,974 in the popular vote. Three other candidates in that election received 6,678,550 votes. That means 9,543,524 more people voted against Trump in 2016 than voted for him, although he managed to win the presidency with 306 Electoral College votes.

Here is the final scientific, mathematical fact in this post: President Trump has faced the American people in two presidential elections. Each time more than 9.5 million Americans voted against him than voted for him. That’s a total of 19,252,413 more Americans who did not want Trump as their president.

Those are the numbers. They do not lie.

“Read ‘em and weep” as the Gambler says.
