Donald Trump, Friday, and Hillary Clinton: Did Third-party Candidates Cost Hillary Clinton the Election? Though third-party candidates appear to have drawn a large vote share in key states, Hillary Clinton would have needed to win a huge percentage of this often-misunderstood group of voters in order to flip the election results.

According to <a href="http://civicyouth.org/an-estimated-24-million-young-people-vote-in-2016-election/">Circle</a>:</p><blockquote><p><i> As of this writing (noon on November 9, 2016), an estimated 23.7 million young voters participated in the 2016 presidential election, which is 50% of citizens aged 18-29 in the United States. We estimate that 13 million youth voted for Secretary Clinton and almost 9 million youth voted for Donald Trump. An additional 2 million young people either voted for third-party candidates or chose not to vote for any of the Presidential candidates on the ballot. </i><br/></p></blockquote><p>The truth of the matter was that overall voter turnout was <a href="https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/no-voter-turnout-wasnt-way-down-from-2012/">about the same as it was in 2012</a>, only down slightly.  There was not some big surge for either candidate and it is debatable whether it was a landslide victory for Donald Trump.  Hillary simply lost because she did not have as much support as Barack Obama once did.  That’s probably because she was a horrible candidate who was publicly exposed to be a criminal and a cheat.</p><p>Either way, suck it up. Donald Trump is your President whether you agree or not.</p><figure data-orig-width="300" data-orig-height="190" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/237b8fca4e65717853fce76ece329fbd/tumblr_inline_ogshmzLCaw1r1jtxd_500.gif" alt="image" data-orig-width="300" data-orig-height="190"/></figure></blockquote>
