Humanity’s most divisive figure, Barack Hussein Obama (even his name is divisive-ish!!), is set to become the first president since Dwight Eisenhower in 1956 to win over 51% of the popular vote twice. The Great Divider is currently at 50.9% of the popular vote, and his lead continues to expand as results are still being tallied.
This obviously leaps past George W. Bush, who didn’t even win the popular vote the first time, and it also beats out Bill Clinton, who never made it past a plurality. Obama’s achievement even squeaks past Ronald Reagan, who only won 50.7% of the vote in 1980.
To be fair, Clinton and Reagan had significant third party candidates to contend with and, furthermore, the margin of victory is not necessarily an accurate reflection of a candidate’s divisiveness, but we’ve never let “facts” or “nuance” or “complexity” get in the way of some childish gloating. And so now we shall commence with the childish, entirely unprofessional gloating segment of this blog post:
Suck it, Marco Rubio.
Suck it, Mitch McConnell.
And suck it, Reince Priebus.
That is all.
