Plot Twist: CNN Now Saying That Donald Trump Will Win The Popular Vote; UPDATE: CNN Admits Design Flaw

UPDATE: It turns out that CNN's projection for Trump was a "design flaw." Hillary Clinton is still poised to win the popular vote.

***Original Post***

CNN is now projecting that when all ballots are counted, Donald Trump will win the popular vote. Currently, Clinton is ahead by about 300,000 votes.

Clinton's presumed victory in the popular vote sparked a new discussion about eliminating the Electoral College, and one person even called for Clinton to sue the country.

The Electoral College and the popular vote have split four times; most recently in 2000.
