7. Since when is a 50-48 percent victory in the popular vote
and a 286-252 electoral vote considered "overwhelming"??? and yet the media lets these jackoffs get away with it. I can remember in '96 when Clinton won a much bigger electoral victory and beat Dole by 8-points in the popular vote that the media still harped because he didn't crack 50%.
