Given who the president is, you'd have needed to guess 50 answers

Not every state voted for him. Most of the people in the country didn't vote for him, either. Lowest approval ratings of any just-inaugurated president. Not to say that Americans don't have a lot to answer for right now... but I don't think the "50 answers" comment is really accurate.

In every country where this opinion polling (or actual election) has been held, Clinton is more popular than Trump. The only exception is Russia.

Given who both the Democrats and Republicans put up, I think all 50 is accurate.

The Democrats and Republicans are private political parties. Although they are (by far) the two biggest parties, their nominees for president do not necessarily correlate to the will of the American people, particularly with regard to the Democrats. The DNC made it known from the outset that it wanted Clinton to win, and that it would do what it could to help her beat Sanders. The DNC also uses "superdelegates" to counter the popular vote so that the party can nominate who it wants. Many actual voters wanted Sanders to be the candidate, but the DNC machine aligned against him. A lot of people knew it, which is part of why there was so little enthusiasm for Clinton. And look what happened as a result.

There were quite a number of Bernie supporters who voted for Trump because of this.

Having lived in Ohio for 8 years, I didn't guess it until there were 6 seconds left on the timer (and after I had guessed at least 10 states that didn't make the list).

that doesn't matter... It is asking for population DENSITY not population. 1 million people on a couple of tiny little islands you think would be pretty dense, no?

Hawaii is ranked 13th, behind California and Illinois. For it to be on this list, Hawaii should have another city the size of Honolulu.

Hawaii's not big, but--to take one example--it has more than six times the land area of Rhode Island (Source), while their populations are not that different.
