'Love Trumps Hate' | Protestors march through Atlanta after election

Trump's victory sparks protest in Atlanta

ATLANTA -- Protestors marched through Atlanta voicing their frustration with the presidential election results and the election process.

Some in the group said they were upset about President-elect Donald Trump winning the election. Others expressed disdain with the electoral college because Hillary Clinton is poised to win the popular vote.
 
Others gathered because they said they wanted to show unity.

The crowd began with a gathering in Piedmont Park but moved through downtown shouting chants like "Love Trumps hate," and others, some that included expletives.

There were several signs in the crowd with varying messages about Trump, love and even Vice President-elect Mike Pence.
