Electoral College works, here we go again. More than two years later there is still whining and crying about the Electoral College, all because the 2016 election did not turn out the way the mainstream media and the rest of the liberal bastions in this country wanted. FACTS: Yes, Hillary won the popular vote, but only by 2.1 percent. If you subtract the voters in LA County and NYC alone, which is a total of 7,020,488, and which no Republican will probably ever win again, she doesn't. Throw in Chicago (fine example of how not to run a city given their murder rate and history for corruption) and Philadelphia and you have a grand total of 8,495,218 votes for Hillary. President Trump lost the popular vote by 2,868,686. He won 32 of the 50 states, and 2,626 counties while Hillary won 487! She also lost most of the states that Obama carried in his two elections. California has voted Blue the past seven elections, New York the past eight, and given the far left direction that both have taken, I would expect those two streaks to continue for a very long time. With all of the aforementioned facts, and there are plenty more believe me, do we want 4-5 cities deciding the fate of the entire country? I don't, and you shouldn't either. Our Forefathers were brilliant people, and had a tremendous vision for fairness and balance; much more brilliant than the constant crybabies who can't seem to get over the shock of 2016 after slurping up the polling that preceded it all predicting a Hillary landslide. The Electoral College system was totally validated in 2016, so enough tears and violins because you didn't get your way. America was totally fed up, and that was what got Donald Trump elected.
