Tell me why any of that matters? We have an electoral college to protect the minority from mob rule in this country by design.

Completely and totally irrelevant.

3 million votes from California, and New York. States Hillary ALREADY WON.

The popular vote is not, and never will be, a thing.

Oh, and for the record, the majority of Americans didn't vote at all.

Yet that is what they want. We have reached a point where only big cities matter. I would be fine with switching to an electoral college based on counties. Politicians should need to cater to EVERY American.

a reply to: stormson Man if all the right leaning people actually cared about politics enough to vote I think they would win by a landslide. That's just my observation from the places I have been.

I think the bigger story here is the fact that over 62 million Americans didn't fall for the Main Stream Media Propaganda. If the media reporting was balanced and fair the numbers would look a lot different. Democrats win a lot of the simpleton votes when people believe whatever the TV tells them. Almost every single news media outlet was Anti Trump and rooting for Hilary and no reporter for those networks could report anything critical of Hilary without getting their mic cut off. Considering the level of psychological warfare the elites are putting on the population I'm shocked Hilary only got three million more votes then Trump. Trumps 62 million votes means that 62 million Americans were willing to look at the facts and seek out the truth.

This has been proven false so many times. She won more than 57, though the difference was still very large.

That is completely false. A simple google search will show you it is false.

Yes, and he still won 75% of the landmass and 85% of the counties.

The idea that Trump won a vastly larger number of counties is true, it is just not true Clinton only won 57.

So you say phage, so you say.

However I say, most didn't.

But you say otherwise? For some reason. Well we cant both be right. But we can both be wrong.

Either way does not matter. It would be as pointless to argue about this as arguing about the consistency and texture of dolphin skin. It took you at the least 3 replies to realize to not bother even in that. I almost feel like I should give you a cookie there phage guy.

As it was stupid. This is just as stupid.

So, everybody can believe whatever it is they want. And like I said, I am not political.

Wow there dude. I am not a Trump dude. I sometimes comment on politics. And well I think Trump sort of won by default, more then anything else. Given the options you all had, well, not very pretty or good as they were. I think southpark said it best, a battle between a dush vs turd. That age old battle of mankind. In this case the dush won over the turd.

In which Trump clearly was the better candidate, and who knows, maybe even what this country needed at the time. Not sure if that still holds true today as I dont bother with politics, but it could be. Or not. Either way, its not like you all have the cream of the crop to pick from there.

i said that if the president is to "represent" the people, then majority should be all that counts.


And I said that the president was never meant to represent the people. Read the Constitution. It's pretty clear, but the amendments get sort of weird sometimes. Kludgey.


As I'm fond of saying....

We are the United STATES of America. Not the United PEOPLE of America.

People are in the majority in their own State. But nationally, States are paramount.

This is why the only national election we have is for President, and even that is handled at State level. And it's for the people to tell their State Government who they want as President, so the State can then cast their electoral votes for that candidate.

As I read posts here, and on the internet elsewhere, I'm amazed at how little most people know about how the Constitution works.

and what, pray tell, are the good reasons that we have an electoral college now that slavery is over?


We have an electoral college so that 3 or 4 populus states dont decide the election for the other states.

California itself is responsible for Hillary's 3 million vote lead. California doesn't and shouldn't speak for the majority of the states. Im glad we have an electoral college.

Trump won the electoral vote.....in 2020 he will win both. The Dems are determined to nominate a socialist in 2020. The meltdown when Trump wins again in 2020 is gonna be glorious.

It's true as far as the message it conveys, the numbers are wrong. Clinton won about 250 counties, Trump about 2800.

Trump won in 75% of America by landmass, and 85% by counties.

Dude this is such a bs argument. Red states don't vote like blue states, if it was a popularity contest he probably would have still won because people like me in red states would actually go vote because our vote would matter. Trust me, this is a really dumb argument because you dont know what Trump would have gotten if it was a popular vote election, I know like 80% of people in red states dont vote because its pointless. The only reason Californians went out is because their west coast and saw that hillary got smashed.
