Trump's 27 Percent

While we often remember that Trump suffered a significant loss against Clinton in terms of the popular vote with a stunning 2,865,080 votes, we forget that only twenty seven percent of the illegible Americans voted for the current president.

It means that almost three-quarter of the electorate didn't care for the billionaire turned politician. Sure, we shouldn't forget that about 45% of Americans didn't bother to vote, but with a large number for Trump voters casting their ballot against Clinton, but not necessarily for Trump.

This might leave us with, at the most, some 35 millions (or 15% of the electorate) that were hard-core Trump supporters. Unless, the new president delivers on his promises and some, he might soon have 85% of the populace turning against him much sooner than he might expect...
