Why we have an Electoral College-

The below information is an eye opener that most likely will not be in the Mainstream News Media.
— Spread the Word! —

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 won 4 of these counties; Trump won 1, Richmond County)
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.
If the Democrats get their way by intruding a Bill that many are talking about doing to do away with the Electoral College and go to a Popular Vote for Electing our Presidents and Vice Presidents, the only campaigning will be done in the heavily populated cites and counties… thus leaving out 3,084 counties who will not be represented to elect our nation’s Presidents.
The founding fathers knew what they were doing when the came up with the Electoral College to elect Presidents of our Untied States!
Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc) don’t and shouldn’t speak for the rest of our country.

The following memes are hilarious and intended to offend liberal sensibilities.

Concentration of Control

Imagine living in the state of Illinois which is a solid democrat state. It has been for many years. Look at the map below and see where the liberal concentration is located, it is the solid blue area near lake Michigan. That concentration of people is Chicago and its collar counties. There are 12.88 million people in Illinois, and 9.73 million live in that dark blue area. The situation is similar for all the other major population areas in the country.

A smart campaigner would save money by asking for votes in those concentrated areas seen on this map, that is, if the system allowed presidents to be chosen by popular votes. It would be totally unfair to all the people who live in less populated areas. Their votes would be meaningless, in fact, we could save a lot of money and trouble by not holding elections in states without a mass population of a particular party. The genius of our Constitutional fathers is highlighted by this element of our process. We pick the electors, they pick the president.

The number of electoral candidates is based on the number of Congressmen and Senators.  The number of  Congressmen each state has is based on population. Each state has two Senators.  To win the election one needs half of the 538 plus one. It is theoretically possible to get 270 electoral votes by winning the eleven states with the highest populations provided those states are all of the same party. The video below explains the process.
