Donald Trump could receive a major boost to his political authority if he's selected as the Republican presidential candidate and wins the popular vote in November, according to a prominent political scientist.
Professor James Vike, an expert in United States politics who teaches at Widener University, told Newsweek such a victory would enable Trump to "wield the popular mandate card in hopes of convincing legislators and rivals to consent to presidential wishes."

Furthermone, the Democrats NEVER questioned Bill Clinton's ability to "wield the popular mandate" when he won only 43% of the popular vote.
But I'm looking forward to the retirement of this tired talking point.
Remember that? Clinton insisted he had a mandate with only 43% of the vote.
Elections are corrupt and Republicans are cowards.
There will be no Republican president.
Clickbait headline. No chance Trump wins the popular vote.
I suggest that Trump has already won the popular vote twice
Which states give electoral votes to person winning popular vote.
I thought it was 39%?
Yeah, it’s a meaningless media creation, some media person made up the name. It obviously doesn’t exist in US presidential elections. The reason liberals want to make it exist is the same reason they talk about “our democracy”. They want to dismantle our Constitutional Republic. They want presidential elections to be decided by a national popular vote. They don’t want states to exist at all except in name only. They want centralized govt, not representative govt. Democracy is their stalking horse.
He won the popular vote in 2020, and the electoral votes that went with it.
I agree w your first statement!!
We better pray to God your wrong w the second!
It's only February. The Democrats can still set the country on fire for a long, hot, violent summer.
There is NO POPULAR VOTE.
It’s a joke to think there is. Some states the GOP has no chance so they don’t even vote. And same with democrats.
What does one call winning the popular vote like Reagan did? I assume Trump will win 2024 like that, especially with dementia Joe melting down so publicly.
I think your crystal ball is on the fritz.
He won popular vote by 8 million in 2020.
Biden isn’t getting any better, in fact the disease causing his dementia is accelerating its progression. Biden 6 months from now will be very different than Biden today.
...... And still lose the election!! ..... They forgot that part ..... Just Sayin' .....
Leave it up to the lame stream media to keep harping on the popular vote garbage.
The Electoral College model is the right way to, timely, confirm government for this Constitutional Republic.
Anything less, lessens the value of millions of voters outside the primary population centers.
Clouded by spritz.
