The 2016 national polls are looking more accurate than they appeared immediately after the election, and the final results reveal what most of us always knew: Hillary Clinton was America’s choice for president.
Clinton garnered nearly 66 million votes in November’s election against Donald Trump — nearly 3 million more than the president-elect, who secured the presidency by winning a majority of Electoral College votes in a questionable victory, tainted by Russian interference.
The former Secretary Of State thanked her supporters Monday in an end-of-year email.
“Before this year ends, I want to thank you again for your support of our campaign,” Clinton wrote. “While we didn’t achieve the outcome we sought, I’m proud of the vision and values we fought for and the nearly 66 million people who voted for them.”
“I believe it is our responsibility to keep doing our part to build a better, stronger, and fairer future for our country and the world,” she continued, echoing her campaign’s mantra of “stronger together.”
“I wish you and your family health, happiness, and continued strength for the New Year and the work ahead,” Clinton’s email said. “I look forward to staying in touch in 2017. Onward!”
Thank you, Madam Secretary! You are my president.
