ELECTORAL COLLEGE EXPLAINED!
It seems few know what it protects.
My great friend, Dr.Peter F0rrest shared this rather simple explanation of why the Founding Fathers did not want the larger states to combine power and be able to harm the smaller states. We have equal representation with each state having 2 Senators instead of the Senate being biased if population were used like the House. Reading blogs, Facebook exposed that few people, Republicans and Demoncrats had any understanding of this statute. A reflection of how our schools including Universities have failed just like they are doing by eliminating Cursive writing in our education systems. C Brewer
Trump won the popular vote in 31 states to her 19 and DC. 62% to her 19%. Trump led in the total popular vote for all states except California. Hillary won California 5,860,714 to Trump’s 3,151,821. 61.6% to 33.1% exclusive of the other candidates. Thus California gave Hillary the popular vote for all states as claimed by the Democrats and their media stooges. But deduct her California vote from her national vote leaving her with 54,978,783, and deduct Trump’s California vote from his national total, leaving him with 57.113.976, he wins in a landslide in the other 49 states, 51.3% to her 48.7%. So, in effect, Hillary was elected president of California and Trump was elected president of the rest of the country by a substantial margin.
This exemplifies the wisdom of the Electoral College, to prevent the vote of any one populous state from overriding the vote of the others. Trump’s Campaign Manager, Kellyanne Conway, whose expertise is polling, saw this early on and devised her strategy of “6 pathways to the White House”. This meant ignoring California with its huge Democrat majority and going after the states that would give him the necessary electoral votes to win, FL, NC, MI, PA, OH, and WI. It worked and our country is safe.
