Well, that depends on whether you adjust for Commiefornia or not. 

For many, Trump won the 49-state popular vote by more than 1.4mm votes when you remove California from the vote totals. Trump spent no time in CA and there were no really competitive GOP candidates running state-wide so CA was ceded to the Dems.

HRC's California vote margin of 4.27mm is the only thing that gave her the national popular margin of 2.865mm. Remove those votes and her 2.8mm national margin disappears and Trump wins with a 1.4mm vote margin. 

IIRC, no other state had a popular Clinton margin great enough to deny Trump the popular vote win. 

Some people actually understand how the USA selects presidents and how a single state was not supposed to be the marginal decider. 

Are the 49% misinformed, or realistic?

I knew that all the time, don't know where you are getting this 49% number from.

Obviously from a poll you will call Fake.

Ok, thats good. You are smarter than 49% of Trump voters

don't be in a rush to pass judgement,

ask if Trump would have won the popular vote if not for all the voter fraud.

So you expect me to believe this 49% number just because you said it, gotcha.

Here are the details since Numbie is too lazy to link to it:

From the NY Daily News:

A Politico/Morning Consult survey published Wednesday showed 49% of voters who say they picked Trump agree with his fact-free assertion that he won the popular vote. Only 40% of Trump voters think Hillary Clinton — who received nearly three million more votes than Trump — was the popular winner.

Even 28% of general voters in the survey think Trump prevailed in the popular vote. Just 59% of the 3,981 participants believe Clinton won.

The confusion even extends to the electoral vote: 72% believe that Trump, who won, won. Fourteen percent think Clinton clinched the electoral win.

The stunning survey comes after Trump and his hand-picked voter fraud investigators have spent months publicly doubting Clinton's undeniable victory in the popular vote.

Clinton received 65,844,610 popular votes, compared to Trump’s 62,979,636, according to the FEC.

But Trump trounced her in the electoral vote, where he managed to win several swing states by less than 1%. He received 304 electoral votes and Clinton received 227, after several electors for both candidates defected.
