The funny part is, it was the alt-right people saying this before the election when they thought Trump would lose the electoral college but win the popular vote. Now all of you get to backtrack and act shocked when someone else says it.

Mixed feelings on the electoral college. On one hand, majority of votes typically makes the most sense, on another the electoral colleges forces candidates to campaign in more places than just New York and California and have a platform that has national appeal.

Bernie always looks like he just crawled out of a coffin.

Dont feel like it, if you want you can search the old political threads on here. Im pretty sure you were one of them on this site. However, a google search will provide plenty of sources from your favorite news sites like Breitbart. Knock yourself out.

a popular vote would make more sense in a smaller country, we are too big with too many dense cities, if we went that route they would only have to worry about California illenois new York Maryland, etc how is that fair? its not

Don't forget that Hillary would have lost the popular vote without those 3 million illegals voting from their sanctuary cities.

I wonder if the internet tips things though. I mean a candidate not campaigning in your state doesn't mean you can't watch their speeches anymore, however they can ignore other regions when it comes to policy decisions....hmm...

Hey! Where's that map that shows how disproportionately the population is concentrated in certain areas. Then remind everyone that the Liberal Progressives, AKA Democrats control those sectors. If they fiddled with the electoral college, the election would be decided in the Democrats' favor from then on.......

Oh! I see! That's what Bernie wants. Of course. That system has been in place for ever, and tons of people complained about it for as long as it's been in place, but it does keep things fair.

i'm beginning to think the electoral college is a good thing. It was originally meant by the founders to prevent rule by the uneducated majority of the people who vote. 200 years later and people still remain uneducated when it comes to matters of politics. Granted, this is the fault of the media and educational system to an extent, but it remains baffling to see what factors into why people will vote. I can concede that there are many who do make informed decisions about who to vote for, but there are too many who get lost in their own echo chamber and vote on a purely superficial and emotional basis instead of logic and reason. I think this election this year clearly represents this.

The electoral college system is a gift to democracy with our current government. If I am not mistaken, a man living on the border or Montana and North Dakota has to go 300+ miles in any direction in the US to find a country that has liberal ideology, so why should he be subjected to a liberal ideology rule? It doesn't make much sense, especially when liberal cities have the capacity to influence voter population over these far off counties. Until we give power back to the states and allow local governments to more reign, it would be wrong to force ideologies based on simple population in a country with this much land mass.
