Keep the Electoral College. Here's why-- I am reposting this anonymous run down:
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 approximately 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 (Trump won Richmond, Clinton won the other 4 of these counties)
- Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
These 5 counties comprise only 319 square miles.
The United States comprises 3,797,000 square miles. When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to 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 .) DO NOT and SHOULD NOT speak for all of the rest of our country! And it has been verified and documented that those 319 square miles foment the majority of our nation's problems.
