The electoral college only becomes racist and sexist after a Republican wins


The argument for the electoral college begins. I caught these images on twitter and I think it sums up the Progressive’s analysis on an issue. Depends at the time one’s ox is being gored apparently.

The blue is where Hillary won the popular vote. The red is where Trump won the popular vote. THAT is the reason for the Electoral College!!

This chart also makes it clear why Democrats are terrified of rising sea levels.

    I’ve heard about this small movement to change the Electoral College. I don’t think it’ll happen in our lifetime but who knows what will happen once all the libtard crybabies are out of school and old enough to vote. Oi!

    States can award their electors any way they want. Currently, almost all states award their electors to the winner of their state’s popular vote. However, there is a small movement lurking which wants states to award their electors to the winner of the national popular vote – something which doesn’t exist. For there to be a national popular vote, the Country has to hold a national election. State popular votes were never meant to be added together. There’s no reason to do that and it means absolutely nothing. It’s completely inaccurate and misleading to even mention this phantom national popular vote. It gives people the false impression that they’re being cheated out of something their candidate ‘won.’ Clinton didn’t win the popular vote. Trump won the popular vote in 30 states and Clinton won the popular vote in 20 states + D.C.

    So, when people talk about the ‘popular’ vote, I (respectfully) give them the correct information. I, also, ask them to spread the word. The ‘national’ popular vote doesn’t exist. We aren’t a ‘nation’ and we don’t have a ‘national’ election. We are a federation of 50 independent, sovereign states, we have state elections, and we have 51 popular votes.

    I, also, ask people to speak out against this ill-conceived and disastrous idea of states awarding their electoral votes per the results of something that doesn’t exist. A much better idea is to award electors proportionally instead of winner take all. States should retain their independence and continue to award their electors per the voice of their own residents, not the residents of other states.

    I’ve been scolded and accused of lecturing and talking down to people for trying to bring attention to this dangerous (yes, dangerous to our federal system of government) error/inaccuracy/fallacy. That is the furthest thing from my intent. It’s important.

      Message received! Excellent points and I agree totally. The other misconception is that the outcome would have been the same if run via popular vote. The candidates taylor their strategy toward winning the electoral votes. My understanding is that Trump will or has won the popular vote against Hillary now.

        Completely agree that Trump would have won if we didn’t have an Electoral College. He would have won no matter what was needed.

    The liberals need a concerted effort to bring in Canada as the 51st state. Problem solved.
