Received in my email today:
The United States’ Founders created the
Electoral College to ensure the STATES and ALL AMERICANS are FAIRLY represented.
Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of the Nation? Do they truly represent all states and our entire Nation?
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 Richmond)
Therefore these 4 MEGA counties in New York City 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.
Should a Nation that encompasses almost 4 million square miles,
be ruled by those who live in one small corner of the vast nation–a mere 319 square miles?
Should this small section of the country dictate a National Election?
Should large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA) speak for the entire Nation?
