Some interesting facts & figures to consider before changing “all the rules” that have existed for almost 250 years about the electoral college. And why this is a very bad idea.

The United States’ Founders created the Electoral College to ensure the States were fairly represented. Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole nation? The following needs to be widely known and understood.

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 approximately 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 won 4 of the 5 counties).

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 sq. miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.

Large, densely populated cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc.) DO NOT & SHOULD NOT speak for the rest of our country! And those 319 square miles are where the majority of our nation’s problems foment.

GOD BLESS THE USA..we WILL NOT allow our Constitution be compromised or The Rule of Law be ignored.
