Yes, my bad; I can see how that was unclear.

OK, so suppose the point is conceded that the impetus of the formulation of the Electoral College was to appease or placate Southern concerns. (I am not there yet, but I acknowledge the point.)

Is the Electoral College approach still fulfilling an important function? Do we really want a popular vote to determine the winner?

Is there not credence to the notion that far more of Hillary’s votes were garneered from the ill-informed and easily led?

In all seriousness, isn’t this election result as much a function of Hillary fatigue, and Hillary entitlement as anything else.

(Notice I didn’t put a question mark after that statement.)
