Clinton is two million votes ahead in popular vote
Hillary Clinton is now more than two million votes ahead of President-elect Donald Trump in the popular vote count for the US presidential elections, according to the popular vote, AFP.
The Cook Political Report showed Wednesday Clinton's popular vote lead continues to grow.
She has received 64,227,373 votes to Trump's 62,212,752 million, according to the Cook Political Report's latest tally, which was compiled from official sources.
However, the Democratic candidate's 1.5 percent lead in the popular vote makes no difference to the outcome of the November 8 election, which Trump won by taking a majority of electoral votes.
It is the second time this century that a Democrat has won the popular vote but lost the presidential election with the first to be vice president Al Gore's loss to George W. Bush.
