    Hundreds of anti-Trump protesters are marching down the streets of South Florida for a third straight night Sunday.

    Protesters gathered around 6 p.m. at Huizenga Plaza in Fort Lauderdale, and marched east down Las Olas Boulevard to A1A until they reached Ft Lauderdale Beach.

    Some at the protest say they were upset with the election results because Trump won the electoral college, but Clinton had a lead in the popular vote.

    "If it were reversed would I be out here protesting— no," said protester Mark Fearer. "The protest isn't about the electoral college really, nearly as much as it is about his policies, his attitude, his hateful speech. That is the opposite of what a president and of what the U.S. should be."

    Police detained one person during Sunday's protest. 32-year-old Marah Lieberman was taken into custody after an alleged altercation with Trump supporters and charged with fighting, resisting arrests and posession of cocaine.

    The protest is the latest in days of demonstrations in South Florida and across the country.

    Dozens of anti-Trump protesters gathered in Wynwood on Saturday and thousands marched through the streets of Downtown Miami and even halted traffic on two major highways Friday night.

    Other protests were expected Sunday in San Francisco, St. Louis, Philadelphia, Denver and more. On Saturday, demonstrators gathered in other big cities like New York and Los Angeles, as well as in smaller places like Worcester, Massachusetts, and Iowa City, Iowa.

    "What I am hoping is that the rest of the elected officials hear this and the rest of the population hear this, and go out and vote correctly in two years," said protester Brenda Sindicich.
