Poll: Many Republicans doubt Clinton won the popular vote

According to a new Morning Consult/POLITICO poll, 47 percent of Republican voters said Trump outpaced Clinton — despite her nearly 2.9 million-vote advantage after all the states certified their election results.

Trump has personally trumpeted the notion that he won the popular vote. His evidence? In a post on Twitter soon after the election, he said he “won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.” And in April he doubled down, stating in two posts on Twitter that he would “still beat Hillary in” the “popular vote.”
