and your assumption that Trump would have won the popular vote if only that was what he wanted is…
Melanie Lane

No one knows for sure, but Trump out-strategized Hillary substantially in this election, so I wouldn’t bet against him.

I support the electoral college (even when it results in my preferred candidates losing, like in 2008 and 2012), it gives a voice to all citizens and not just the high population areas. A popular vote system would allow for candidates to completely ignore those living in fly-over” country.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
