The unsatisfying remarks that we’ve heard regarding Hillary’s loss on November 8 by liberals have been extremely tiring. Some reactions were quite comic, whereas other, like the violent riots, were scary.
If we leave Jill Stein’s attempts for a vote recount, liberals have mostly called for the termination of the Electoral College.
They think that because Hillary won the popular vote, she should’ve won the election, correct?
It would be unfair for just a couple of densely populated states to decide the election. This is why the Electoral College exists.
The statistical list below should once and for all answer any troubling dilemmas regarding the existence of the Electoral College.
“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.
In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only 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 who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.
Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc) don’t and shouldn’t speak for the rest of our country.”
