Lookin at the 2016 Vote for President
Whether Democrat, Republican or Independent, here's something to think
We hear a cacophony of blaring and bleating from the media and the Hillary
supporters that she won the popular vote and therefore she should be president,
60,839,497 to 60,265,847.
7.8% to 47,3% with the remaining
4.9% going to the other candidates.
But here is a more in-depth analysis:
Trump won the popular vote in 31 states to her 19 and DC... 62% to her 19%.
Trump led in the total popular vote for all states except California. She won
California 5,860,714 to his 3,151,821. 61.6% to 33.1% exclusive of the other
candidates. Thus California gave Hillary the popular vote for all states as
claimed by the Democrats and their media supporters.
But deduct her California vote from her national vote, it leaves her with
54,978,783, and deduct Trumps California vote from his national total, it leaves
him with 57,113,976, he wins in a landslide in the total for the other 49
states, 51.3% to her 48.7%.
So, in effect, Hillary was elected president of California and Trump was
elected president of the rest of the country by a substantial margin.
This exemplifies the wisdom of the Electoral College, to prevent the vote of
any one populace state from overriding the vote of the others.
With our voter registration available when getting a driver's license
combined with undocumented immigrants allowed driver's licenses we have no
controls in place to keep non-citizens from voting.
So I ask you, frankly, do you REALLY want California voters to elect your
presidents for you? Or any other heavily populated state? It would be like the
tail wagging the dog. The average state has 8.7 members in the US House of Reps.
CA has 53. If states weren't restricted to two senators each, CA would have 12.
If no electoral college, candidates would probably only campaign in CA and
NY....all they'd need to win.
The founding fathers never cease to amaze me with their foresight and
In fact, we could use an electoral college in CA.
