Why the Electoral College? The Answer Is………..
There are 3,141 counties in the United States.
Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.
There are 62 counties in New York State.
Trump won 46 of them.
Clinton won 16.
Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
5 counties encompass NYC:
Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens.
Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump.
Clinton won 4 of these counties.
Trump won Richmond.
Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles.
When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those that encompass a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.
I’ll add that our Founders were brilliant for providing the Electoral College. Secondly, if the illegal and fraudulent votes were subtracted (estimated to be a minimum of 3 million) then Trump also won the Popular vote by 1.5 million.
In other words, STFU lefties already, we’re tired of your shit.
