Why we elect a President with the Electoral College

If you think the Electoral College should be done away with and President should be elected on the Popular vote only…

Let’s take a look at why the Founding Fathers saw the problem with that and instead went with the Electoral College system..

In 2016 Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by approximately 1.5 million votes .. So what did it take to Win the popular vote.. 5 counties. Constituting 319 square miles.

The United States has 3,141 counties in the entire country.. and the constitutes 3,797,900 square miles.

The Democrats are content to ignore the other 3,136 counties and the 3, 979,581 square miles of people and living that happens there, to win an election.

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.

Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc) don’t and shouldn’t speak for the rest of the country.

What system has the overall people’s interest and what system is designed to benefit the small elite?

And this children is why you have an Electoral College. It’s a safety net so that everyone’s’ vote counts.
