Fact is, the 2016 election set a record for turnout, and Trumps turnout numbers were greater than any Republican has ever gotten.
I know Trump says this all the time in his speeches, but it's not true. In fact, if you just do a very simple Google search you'll quickly see it's not true. Please do that.
That said, counter to DV1's belief, and Trump's frequent claim, we already know via the publicly available data that 2016 was the lowest voter turnout in a generation for a presidential election (i.e. either way it doesn't matter). The turnout in 2016 was the lowest since Clinton vs. Dole in 1996, and my guess is that was because everyone knew there was a 0% chance Dole could win, so hoards of people likely stayed at home.
Well, according to the FEC, you are wrong. Maybe you should tell them they got it all wrong.
From the FEC:
2016 total votes cast= 136,669,237
2012 total votes cast = 129,085,410
2008 total votes cast = 131,313,820
2004 total votes cast = 122,294,846
2000 total votes cast = 105,421,423
1996 total votes cast = 96,277,634
1992 total votes cast = 104,423,923
I don't know how far back you want to go, but it seems 2016 was a record turnout, and when you examine each candidates vote totals, Trump got more than any Republican before him.
As for the rest of your post, do you realize how full of it you are, or do you really believe those lame attempts to rationalize a failed political analysis are actually legitimate?
