None. The election is not based on the popular vote. It is based on the electoral vote. The electors actually cast the vote, so a president without the popular vote can be elected president, such as in the 2000 Election between George Bush and Al Gore.

Every 4 years, the United States of America engages in a Presidential Election.

The person who, having been deemed qualified under Section 1, Article 2 of the U.S. Constitution, receives a majority of votes in the Electoral College (270 votes or greater out of 538) will become the next president.

Because Electoral College votes are given to candidates based on the returns of state-wide popular votes among eligible citizens, this means that the candidate who is awarded a state's Electoral College votes must have obtained a plurality of votes in that particular state.

The actions of the President of the United States can not be directly counter-acted by the American people, but they may be challenged by the Supreme Court of the United States, and the President can be removed from office through impeachment or through alternative voting.

A two-thirds (2/3) majority of BOTH the Senate and the House of Representatives is required to overturn the veto of a president. This means 67 senators and 298 representatives would have to be in favor of a law to pass it without the president's approval.
