Subject: Interesting Information on the Electoral College & the Last Presiden...

If we used the popular vote to determine national elections,
New York, Chicago and most of California would become
the rulers of the rest of the country.  Imagine the future of the
nation being in the hands of these morons......YIKES !!!!!

In their infinite wisdom, the United States’ founders created the Electoral College to ensure the STATES were fairly represented. 
Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of the nation?

The following list of statistics has been making the rounds on the Internet. 
It should finally put an end to the argument as to why the Electoral College makes sense for our country.

Do share this.  It needs to be widely known and understood.
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 in Richmond).
Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning margin in 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) DO NOT and SHOULD NOT speak for the rest of our country !

They have, because people love spreading false statistics that back up their point of view.


Also, Clinton won by more than 3 million votes.

Let's put this in terms RWD can understand:

Most people who voted did not want Donald Trump to be president.

Apparently its about square miles and not people! Proving that RWD will forward any stupid argument that supports his candidate.
