I don’t know who compiled these statistics, but it shows just what a blessing it is to have the electoral college enshrined in our Constitution!
THE LIBERAL MEDIA is and will be in hyper-drive as the inauguration of Donald Trump takes place, trying to spin his election as tainted or invalid. The Founders of our Nation in their infinite wisdom created the Electoral College to ensure EACH State of the UNITED States is fairly represented. Why should one or two densely populated areas (in the 1780s that was New York & Boston) speak for the whole of the nation?

The following list of statistics should finally put an end to the argument as to why the Electoral College makes sense.


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 New York City (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens), Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump.
(Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump carried 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 contains 3,797,000 square miles.
When you have this country encompassing 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 our entire National Election.

BOTTOM LINE:  Large, densely populated Democrat cities (New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, etc) DON’T and SHOULDN’T speak for the rest of our country!


Are you now THANKFUL that we have the “Electoral College”?    I am!
