Current projections are that 150 million Americans will be registered to vote in 2016.

He are the reported popular vote totals for the leading major party candidates so far:

Donald Trump 13,897,191
Hillary Clinton 16,663,802

So these “overwhelming” popular vote totals actually account for only a small percentage of actual American voters. Only a fraction of the voting population chose these two horrible candidates.
