Why an Electoral College?


#1

In their infinite wisdom, the United States’ Founders created
the Electoral College to ensure the STATES were
fairly represented.

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
the Electoral College makes sense.

Do share this. It needs to be widely known and understood.

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
Richmond)

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.

All in favor say aye.

Not enough beers to give here.

All have to say is holy shit. THIS says it all.

Honestly, fuck the democrats for suggesting to remove the electoral college and fuck these millennial IDIOTS for not understanding the POINT of it.

@Robert, hey where’d you get this info? I would like to start using it anytime I argue with leftists about Trump and the electoral college.


#6

Amen brothers. Our Founders created the Senate for the same reason…equal representation for all states, large or small.

There is another item of interest to connect to this.
The Superdelegate.
It shows how different the views are in each party.
Or shall I say how corrupt the Democraps can be.
I will also say most dyed in the wool Left Wingers don’t know about this and think they elect their delegates to run.
We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid. Ben Franklin

From Wikipedia:

In [American politics a superdelegate is an unpledged delegate to the Democratic National Convention who is seated automatically and chooses for themselves for whom they vote. These Democratic Party superdelegates (who make up slightly under 15% of all convention delegates) include elected officials and party activists and officials.

Democratic superdelegates are free to support any candidate for the presidential nomination. This contrasts with pledged delegates who are selected based on the party primaries and caucuses in each U.S. state, in which voters choose among candidates for the party’s presidential nomination. On August 25, 2018, the Democratic National Committee agreed to reduce the influence of superdelegates by generally preventing them from voting on the first ballot at the Democratic National Convention, allowing their votes only in a contested nomination.

At least in name, superdelegates are not involved in the Republican Party nomination process. There are delegates to the Republican National Convention who are seated automatically, but they are limited to three per state, consisting of the state chairman and two district-level committee members. Republican Party superdelegates are obliged to vote for their state’s popular vote winner under the rules of the party branch to which they belong.

To @Robert and @Grenz45 have pointed out the eloquence of Constitutional creators in balancing “the will of the people” across all of our country, both Urban and Rural. The super-delegate concept is steeped in Democratic corruption.
