The Electoral College Works . . .

smartbook.. the way it’s supposed to when you consider the following statistics brought to light by a San Diego Union-Tribune letter to the editor.

According to the writer, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 4.2 million votes in California. But her popular-vote margin nationally was only 2.7 million, which means Donald beat Hillary by 1.5 million votes in the rest of the country.

Without taking any side, it appears the Electoral College did what it was designed to do: prevent one or more factions or groups or states from determining the will of the entire nation.
