    The lead of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over her Republican rival Donald Trump in the US popular vote has surpassed 2 million votes on Wednesday, according to the 2016 national popular vote tracker data.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Clinton is leading with 64,225,534 votes against Trump’s 62,209,804 votes, data released by the nonpartisan Cook Political Report on Wednesday showed.

    Trump won the US presidential election on November 8 by securing the necessary 270 Electoral College votes.

    The President-elect told The New York Times on Tuesday that had never been a fan of the Electoral College system until his victory, and would "rather do the popular vote."

    Trump's inauguration will be held on January 20, 2017.
