Donald Trump got fewer votes not only than Hillary Clinton in last week's election, but fewer votes than Republican candidate Mitt Romney in 2012.
Although he did better than I expected, or predicted, there was no surge in support for the president-elect, as much of the media narrative has suggested.
The reason he won, despite losing Republican votes on four years ago, is because the Democratic vote collapsed. Barack Obama garnered four million more votes in 2012 than Clinton did this year.
