In an earlier post about the election, I wrote that "even if everyone who voted for Dr. [Jill] Stein in swing states won by Trump except Michigan had voted for Hillary, the Democrats still would have lost." I don't think that came out right . . . what I meant was that if everyone who voted for Dr. Stein in swing states that Trump won - apart from Michigan, which didn't even report its results until after the election was called - voted for Hillary Clinton, Hillary still would have lost these states to Trump, but if everyone in Michigan had voted for Hillary Clinton as well, she would have won Michigan . . . but still would have lost the election, 288 electoral votes to 243 as opposed to 304 to 227, not counting the seven electoral votes that went to other candidates.
I now return to my blog at the point where I interrupted it . . ..
