I would like to propose another angle into this problem — and you’ve alluded to this previously. This regards probability. The margin of Trump’s victory is extraordinary against the margin of Clinton’s aggregate lead. The mathematical probability of this must be quite low. I can’t do those numbers, but it may be worthwhile in support of the various strategies afoot to engage a probability expert to determine exactly the odds of T achieving his commanding electoral lead against C’s significant aggregate lead. What mathematical obstacles would he have to overcome? If the odds were as I suspect so low, this would add weight to the argument implicit above that the system is either broken or in some hard to define way crooked.
