Forty-nine percent of those who cast their ballots for Donald Trump last November say he won the popular vote, while 40 percent say his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton did, according to the results of a new Politico/Morning Consult poll.

Here are the poll highlights:

  • 59 percent of all those polled believe Clinton won more votes than Trump, compared to 28 percent who believe Trump collected more votes.
  • 72 percent of say Trump won the Electoral College, compared to 14 percent who say Clinton did. (Trump won 304 electoral votes while Clinton picked up 227).

"The president himself asserted in late November that he won the popular and the electoral vote," Politico's Steven Shepard wrote.

"'In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally,' Trump tweeted."

"A report from the Federal Election Commission, compiled earlier this year from official state election results, credits Clinton with winning nearly 2.9 million more votes than Trump out of a total of almost 137 million votes cast."

The poll was conducted July 20-24 and surveyed 3,981 registered voters. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
