US Presidential Elections
Electoral Vote Totals

Donald Trump has called his electoral vote total a "massive landslide victory". To be a landslide there must be at least a 15% difference between first (57.5%)
and second (42.5%) place in the popular vote. Donald Trump did not win the popular vote, so for an electoral vote landslide, it is generally agreed that the
winning candidate should have 70% of the electoral vote total.

Donald Trump has also stated "Today marks a historic electoral landslide victory in our nation's democracy." and
the Democrats have "suffered one of the greatest defeats in the history of politics in this country."

So, in none of these cases, can we say that Donald Trump's victory is a landslide nor are any of these statements true.
The United States has held 58 Presidential elections. If we were to put these 58 into order by electoral vote percentage, Donald Trump's election is number 46.

The above table is fairly easy to understand.
For example, in 2016, Donald Trump won 304 electoral votes and became President-elect, defeating Hillary Clinton who only received 227 electoral votes.
The "Win %" column is the electoral vote percentage the winner received.
For example, in 2016, Donald Trump won 304 out of 538 electoral votes.
(304 ÷ 538) * 100 = 56.51%
