The fact-deniers persist: Nearly a third of Trump voters don't know he got trounced in popular vote
"As for Americans who are actually showing signs of conscious living (including an aptitude for critical thinking), PPP finds they don't like the idea of the "president" being a popular-vote loser. Voters don't think that Trump's Electoral College victory while losing the popular vote is really fair--50% think the candidate who receives the most votes nationally in the election should become President, to only 37% who disagree with that concept. Trump and his minions may not know it yet, but that's a huge problem for him. From the moment he's sworn in, a large swath of the population will immediately view him as illegitimate. Good luck with that."
