In their infinite wisdom, the United States’ Founders created

Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the
whole of the nation?
The following list of statistics has been making the rounds on
the Internet. It should finally put an end to the argument as to why

There are 3,141 counties in the United States.Trump won 3,084
of them. Clinton won 57.
There are 62 counties in New York State.Trump won 46 of
them.Clinton won 16.
Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan,
Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes
than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won
Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton
winning the popular vote of the entire country.
These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles. When you
have a country that encompasses almost 4 million
square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that
the vote of those who Inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate
the outcome of a national election.
Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA,
etc.). DO NOT & SHOULD NOT speak for the rest of our
country And…it’s been verified and documented that those
aforementioned 319 square miles are where the majority of our
nation’s problems foment.
