Concerning the Electoral College.
For all the people who fell asleep in civics class...
1: There are 3,141 counties in the United States. Trump won 2,626 of them. Clinton won 487.
2: There are 62 counties in New York State. Trump won 46 of them. Clinton won 16.
3: Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
4: 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.
5: These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles. The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles.
6: 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 the country.
And this children, is WHY you have a Electoral College. It's a safety net so that EVERYONES vote counts.- Duane Patterson Thanks Duane.

Can someone explain number 3 and 4? Number 3 mentions 1.5 million votes. And number 4 mentions over 2 million more votes. I feel asleep in civics class.

Think he was trying to explain how votes are available and counted. If you look at AOCs election she won with a small number of people voting compared to those who could have voted and didn't according to FEC. Makes me wonder how many real voters are alive and how many on paper.

@Oldbull11 Still don't understand but that's okay. Thanks for the reply.

@jbruceguitar , Number 3 says nationally Clinton had more than 1.5 million votes than Trump, Number 4 says in those five counties Clinton received more than 2 million votes than Trump, which means Clinton received far fewer votes than Trump elsewhere. #3 and #4 don't contradict each other.

They don't care what flyover America thinks. The elites running the nation's most densely populated metropolises know what is best for you. Nevermind that the crime violence poverty and chaos that these overcrowded cities are the root cause of many of the problems that give their political lives purpose, validating their desire to steal your liberty and money with every new law they present as solutions to the problems they created. They and they alone are the only ones qualified to speak for America. All you dumb hayseeds in rural America need to just keep your heads down, shut up and like it. MAKE EVERY VOTE COUNT.

Hypocrites.

For all the nuance genius claimed by liberals they either can't understand or more likey reject it as not part of their world view
