Thank God We Have the Electoral College

< ![CDATA[In the 2016 presidential race Trump’s projected win is 306 electoral votes to Clinton's 232, but Clinton bested Trump with 1 1/2 million more popular votes out of 125,505,086 cast for the two. The divide is a little over one percent. Imagine the endless recounts, accusations of voter fraud that would have to be investigated, and the time to determine the outcome legitimizing the winner—if that were even possible. Some took to the streets the next day before we even knew the popular vote count. As volatile and emotional as the reaction to the Trump victory was, who can guarantee that the losing side would not revolt as in other countries. Pease answers the question, why the Constitution has the president elected through the states and not through a national popular vote. So the states with their populations have voted and Trump has 36 Electoral College votes more than the 270 needed and Clinton 38 under—a clear, clean, decisive vote for both winner and loser. Thank God we have the Electoral College. Why would we wish to change to a system that almost guarantees confusion, chaos and possible revolution?]]>

    Would you be saying the same thing if your candidate lost the electoral vote but won the popular? My guess is probably not.

      Besides, until a recount is done there’s no way to verify he even won the electoral vote. Honestly, because the state of our electoral system has become so corrupt, even if a recount is done there’s no way to verify who actually won.
