    Holy moly is that dumb. If you don't count a lot of people who voted for Clinton, Trump would have won the popular vote. That's like saying that if you don't count the rounds that Woodley won, Thompson would be the champ. Take both California and Appalachia out of the picture, and Clinton still wins.

    Looks like someone doesn't understand what the popular vote means.

    Exactly why we have the Electoral College. So dumbass California liberals can't keep fucking the U.S. over with their shitty politicians.

    So, basically, the election of someone like her is exactly what the electoral college vote exists to prevent?

    No, it's to prevent one region of the country from controlling the election, as it states in the article.

    It's making a case for the Electoral College, which you totally missed.

    To prevent any certain region from controlling the election. As I said right above and as it says in the article, which you didn't read.

    Didn't read the article.
    But that's what I said. 'Someone like her,' being someone who only has the support of a populous geographic region, rather than being a representative of the country as a whole.

    That makes no sense. It enables regions to control the election even if they have fewer people. A national popular vote would give every voter equal weight, regardless of where they live.

    thats part of it, and rightly so. kinda....what it prevents is sectionalism.

    however, initially in the US our founders thought as many in the time did, that the common man is not capable of voting directly on the executive. they thought the masses are too easily swayed an manipulated, so they only allowed direct vote on the house of representatives in the US.

    Wrong. It gives each state a fair share in the election based on size. Maine 1 vote, Cali 55. Maine is not controlling shit as it has 1 vote to Cali's 55.

    I was discussing this with Denter. If you're distrustful of democracy, the solution would be electing electors on the basis of respect for their judgment rather than electors who are pledged to a candidate. If you believe that we can democratically elect a president, a popular vote makes the most sense. The current system is just a dated relic that isn't intelligently designed to serve any modern purpose.

    The system works fine and it works exactly as it was designed to work. I see no issue.
