A look at some rough numbers may show how liberals lost to Donald Trump.

It appears they literally killed their chances of winning more votes than Trump in key swing states.

As of Nov. 8, 2016, the population of the United States was an estimated 324,013,797. (U.S. Census Bureau, V2015)

An estimated 12.2 percent of Americans were black. (Non-Hispanic, non-immigrant, U.S. Census Bureau, 2010 Census)

That’s an estimated black U.S. population of 39,529,683 on Nov. 8, 2016.

As of Nov. 8, 2016, there had been an estimated legal 59,079,987 abortions in the U.S. since Roe v. Wade in 1973. (Life Matters, per National Right to Life)

Of that, an estimated 17,723,995, or 30.0 percent, were of black children. (Life Matters, per National Right to Life)

Without abortion (and assuming all unaborted people were still alive), the total U.S. population on Election Day would have been somewhere around 383,093,784.

That roughly translates into a 18.23% increase in the US population.

Without abortion (and assuming all unaborted people were still alive), the total black population of the United States would be somewhere around 57,253,679.

Without abortion (and assuming all unaborted people were still alive),  there would be a 44.84% increase in the black population.

Without abortion (and assuming all unaborted people were still alive), blacks would be somewhere around 14.95 percent of the U.S. population.

137,098,601 Americans voted in the 2016 presidential election, out of an estimated population on Election Day 2016 of 324,013,797.  That’s a turnout of 42.31 percent of the entire population.

Black voters were 12 percent of the total turnout in 2016, according to CNN and Fox News exit polls.

That means there were 16,451,832 black votes cast in 2016.

Without abortion (and assuming all unaborted people were still alive), a 42.31 percent turnout rate among the no-Roe U.S. population on Election Day would have been somewhere around 165,534,824.

2016 black voter share was nearly identical to 2016 black population share. Apply that estimated 14.95 percent no-Roe black population share to the no-Roe 2016 turnout, and you get 24,747,456 black voters on Election Day.


That means, thanks to legalized abortion, there were roughly 8,295,624 fewer black votes cast in 2016 and a reduction in the black share of the vote by around three percent.

What does that mean for the 2016 Electoral College results?

Assuming abortion rates are the same across all states, applying that estimated 18.23 total and 44.84 black percent no-Roe population increase to the Census Bureau’s state-by-state total and black population figures gives you a rough idea of what each state’s black and overall populations would be without abortion.

Trump won the election by 77 Electoral College votes.

There were six states in which the estimated growth in black vote share without abortion was larger than Trump’s margin of victory, adding 106 Electoral College votes to his total.

All six were swing states.

Trump won Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes by only 0.73 percent.  Were it not for abortion, it appears the Pennsylvania’s electorate would have been 2.43 percent more black.

Trump won Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes by only 0.77 percent.  Were it not for abortion, it appears the Wisconsin electorate would have been 1.37 percent more black.

Trump won North Carolina’s 15 electoral votes by 3.66 percent.  Were it not for abortion, it appears the North Carolina electorate would have been 4.86 percent more black.

Trump won Georgia’s 16 electoral votes by 5.13 percent.  Were it not for abortion, it appears the Georgia electorate would have been 7.07 percent more black.

Trump won Florida’s 29 electoral votes by 1.20 percent.  Were it not for abortion, it appears the Florida electorate would have been 3.58 percent more black.

Trump won Michigan’s 16 electoral votes by only 0.23 percent.  Were it not for abortion, it appears the Michigan electorate would have been 3.2 percent more black.

I’m not a mathematician, statistician or pollster.  All of these are rough numbers and estimates. But the numbers seem to show one thing.


Were it not for legalized abortion’s disproportionate toll on the black community, it appears Hillary Clinton could have won the presidential election, and possibly by a crushing margin of 333 to 200.

They literally killed their chances of winning the White House.  Will they now stop the slaughter of innocents?
