Answering the “Trump Got Less Votes than Romney” Talking Point

By Political Arena Editor Chuck Norton.

A few desperate “Never Trumpers” are still struggling to be relevant.

The latest talking point is that Romney was a better candidate because he got more votes than Trump. Romney got more votes in 2012 than Trump did in 2016.

Trump got 920,000 votes less than Romney nation wide, but all of that plus was from California. So if we take out the land of fruits and nuts and just look at regular America you see that Trump did even better than Romney.

Romney California votes in 2012 – 4,202,127

Trump California votes in 2016 – 3,151,821

A difference of 1.05 Million.

So as far as the electoral college is concerned, their talking point adds up to a big fat goose egg.
