These numbers will probably be quite smaller as the US moves from coal to alternative fuel sources.

Those margin numbers shouldn't be surprising. Hillary wanted to kill coal jobs.

I think its probably more complicated then that, but she probably should have given coal some lip service. In the end it doesn't matter. Its not like Clinton, Trump, or anyone else can save coal. It's already economically infeasible to build new coal plants, and within a generation it won't make sense to operate existing ones either.

The irony is that supporting renewable energy would create more jobs than all coal jobs combined.

There are already three times as many jobs in solar as coal, even though solar generates less of America's energy needs. Using solar more will create far more jobs than trying to give life support to the dying and planet-killing coal industry.

I'd like to see some figures on that Suspect it is similar to the line I've heard here that job losses in forestry, agriculture etc will be more than compensated for by jobs in tourism as governments declare more national parks

Trying to understand the inclusion of the Trump statistics here. I'm no fan, but it's distracting and not relevant to the quiz at all. JetPunk would get very tiresome indeed if quizzes started having extra stuff like this.

Did you miss the part where Trump spent his entire campaign promising to revive the coal industry (as if that's within a president's powers)?

Makes sense since he was campaigning against someone who stated her goal would be to "put coal miners out of business". Those kinds of comments speak pretty clearly to blue collar folks who've never gotten a paycheck from anywhere but the coal business - for generations.

I was able to exclude all the states that went to Clinton after I got the one blue state, so it was helpful to me.

I am not American, but am I not correct in thinking that the majority of voters in the USA put President Trump in power by a democratic election? Yet the people that voted against Trump (for Clinton) are the loudest in complaining about the result and do they not envisage that every knife thrown at Trump is a flower in the garden of the USA's biggest enemies.

I am an American, and you are not correct. A majority of the voters voted against Trump. American presidential elections are not strictly democratic.

snix is correct. The American electoral system is designed to make sure that the voters in large cities can't consistently silence the votes of the very large minority who don't live in large cities. If you win some large cities and most of the rural areas, you win in a landslide, even if NewYorkers and Los Angelinos voted against you en masse.

The majority of voters also voted against Hillary Clinton, too.

The electoral college has nothing to do with cities vs. rural areas. NYC barely had over 30,000 people living in it when the Constitution was written (and the EC designed). Cities were tiny back then and no one in the 1780s could have envisioned that NYC would 200 years later have 8 million residents. It was a compromise to offset the votes of large states like Virginia, NY, Massachusetts with small states like Delaware, Rhode Island.

1. 40% of eligible voters in the United States didn't even vote in the last election.
2. Counting those who did, Trump lost by over 3 million votes.
3. The biggest enemy of the United States currently in Trump himself. Runners up would be anyone who claims that cherished American values such as free speech, criticism of elected officials, speaking truth to power, and a healthy opposition are somehow detrimental to the country.
