Yes, I was speaking in generalities. But I do get your point.
Then you understand that for her to win she would have had to won the appropriate number of state-level popular elections, the overall national vote is not a determiner and this is the 5th time that this has occurred where the President Elect did not get the national popular vote.
This is not going to change at the Federal level.

actually the right answer to this problem is a constitutional amendment requiring all states to distribute electors proportionally to the vote by district. the winner take all set up in most states is why this happened.

No where near 99.7 percent of people voted Trump, and that is a fact. Hillary secured more of the popular vote than Trump during the election, and only the electoral college won it for him.
I also hate Hillary and believe that she is dirtier than a sewer main, but the people's voice was NOT reflected in the result of the election.

As of today , 11/11/16 , Clinton has a 226,000 Lead in the Popular Vote with N.H. and Michigan not Completely Counted Yet .
Donald Trump has won Arizona’s presidential contest and its 11 electoral votes.
The Republican president-elect had a solid lead over Hillary Clinton on election night, but a winner wasn’t declared because there were so many uncounted votes. The latest batch of returns tabulated Thursday made him the clear winner. Source
