Hillary would have won the election if the US uses a conventional election scheme

Almost every republic uses a conventional election scheme. In the first round, if no one gets a majority of more than 50%, there is a run off between the top 2 and whoever wins the run off gets the win. Hillary didn't get a majority so it would have went to a run off where Hillary would have won. The US is the only republic that uses the bizarre electoral college scheme that does not take popular vote into account.

The EC would work fine if we drew districts fairly. I'm not sure throwing out our current system is a good idea. A conversation needs to happen though, that's for sure.

You can't change the form of the election every time it doesn't go your way. Trump won, get over it.

That's why we have it. So LA can't tell the rest of us what to do.

Let's just change the rules so your team can win? Is that about the gist of it?

How about we have more teams and keep the rules. I'm willing to bet that we all could go for that!

But a few counties in the Rust Belt can? We do need to talk about it.

Mob rule (aka 50%+1) elections in the U.S. is at all levels except the Presidential election.

You mean the vast majority of the counties throughout the country.

The EC would work fine if we drew districts fairly.


You mean like the east coast and west coast getting more say than fly over country.

Doing it fairly would giving each and every state and equal vote.

Where every state is a battleground state.

Ground has been gained .

Hillary would have won.... if.

It seems that they have started to accept that she lost.

The next thing they will want is for the Senate to be abolished.... not fair for Rhode Island and California to have the same number of Senators.

Each state should have exactly 2 votes.

Anything that stopped Hillary winning is a good thing! Stop crying and give Trump your support.

This, or something very similar to this thread, is the definition of insanity.

This AGAIN?.... STILL?

In another universe, Im sure Hillary was elected.

In this one, you get Trump.

Theoretically, there might be two holes available to get to your desired destination:

Worm
Or
Bullet

Pick one and shut up!

How many times(and threads) did we discuss this during the election? Too many.

But the "majority rules" system is used to determine the EC tally.

I see you don't even understand the EC system.
