Talk about exaggeration.

It's 600k, not 2.2M!

Apparently the votes are still being counted and the final estimation is a majority of 2.2 million. Obviously that's an estimate but it's still a reasonable margin.

Nate Cohn, an election analyst at the New York Times, estimates that once all votes have been counted, 63.4 million Americans will have voted for Mrs Clinton and 61.2 million for Mr Trump, giving the Democrat a ‘winning’ margin of 1.5 per cent.
Yes, the analyst could exaggerate his estimation but then he'd look a bit of a knob if he was totally wrong when the final votes are counted.
