Since the election has taken place a few weeks ago, liberals have been constantly moaning and complaining about the results and not accepting that Donald Trump is going to be our president.
While their tears and moaning was humorous at times, the violent protests were not.
While Jill Stein has done her best to force a recount by raising millions of dollars, it has been the left who were constantly demanding that the Electoral College be disbanded. They say that it is unfair that Trump won, as Hillary captured the popular vote.
This thinking is pure wrong.
The founding fathers of our great nation had the foresight and wisdom to make the Electoral College to make sure that states were fairly represented. If this was not the case, one of two highly populated states would determine the results for the rest of the entire nation.
These figures have been doing the rounds on the internet which prove why the Electoral College makes complete sense:
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.
What are your thoughts on this?
