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.)
