Here’s my rant:
Why this argument about popular vote is invalid and needs to stop! (As you will learn, Trump actually DID win the popular vote too, not that it matters!)
There are several issues surrounding this discussion about popular vote.
This election campaign was fought with the goal of winning electoral votes, not popular vote. (Many are not aware that millions of votes that would favor Trump remain uncounted!)
There is a valid reason for the electoral college but that’s a different argument and I’m not going to discuss it here, other than to say that it helps keep the balance of power and ensures that each state has a voice.
If the goal of the campaign had been to win the popular vote the campaign team and the voters would have behaved differently. The campaigns would’ve focused MUCH more attention on high density population areas…
