Guam has finished counting their ballots, and the winner is clear…it is Hillary Clinton!
The tiny territory of Guam, located west of the international date line, is 15 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time and calls itself “Where America’s Day Begins.”
With 32,071 voters casting ballots, HillaryClinton received 71.63% of the vote. Donald Trump received 24.16%, and Socialist candidate Emidio Soltysik — the only third-party candidate on the ballot — received 4.22%.
Although all voters here are American citizens, their votes in the presidential race do not count because Guam has no representation in the Electoral College. Unlike U.S. citizens who live in foreign countries, Guam residents are not allowed to vote absentee from states.
Their votes from the last three elections were:
• In 2012, President Obama received 72.4% in the straw poll vs. 26.5% for Republican Mitt Romney.
• In 2008, Obama won the island 57.3% to 34% for the GOP nominee, Sen. John McCain of Arizona.
• In 2004, incumbent President George W. Bush won 64% to 35.1% for Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, the Democratic nominee.
