Back on November 1st, I posted an article about the electoral college when a nefarious outfit was posting an ad around the internet on dissolving the EC and going with the straight national popular vote.

Since then, I've found this gem of an explanation from a disqus commenter on a site, (which I don't recall, but copied it):

"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."

When you look at the county-wide results of this election, it's not hard to understand that 1) the people of this nation spoke clearly about who they wanted as their President for the next four years, and 2), it was a united effort, and not the "divided nation" narrative the Media, and our dear liberal friends would like you to believe.

Any questions?
