After Donald Trump’s Electoral College victory 10 days ago, liberals everywhere are calling for an end to the Electoral College.
But what would it have looked like without the EC?
Here’s more from The Hill:
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) will introduce legislation on Tuesday to get rid of the Electoral College, after Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election despite leading in the popular vote.
“In my lifetime, I have seen two elections where the winner of the general election did not win the popular vote,” Boxer said in a statement. “In 2012, Donald Trump tweeted, ‘The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy. I couldn’t agree more. One person, one vote!”
She added that Clinton, whom she supported, is “on track to have received more votes than any other presidential candidate in history except Barack Obama.”
“The Electoral College is an outdated, undemocratic system that does not reflect our modern society, and it needs to change immediately,” she said.
From Young Cons:
Most of Hillary Clinton’s votes came from liberal-heavy counties. If the EC was abolished, we’d be run by Californians and New Yorkers.
That wouldn’t work out so well for anybody – least of all Democrat voters (they’re just too incompetent to understand).
Business Insider put together this map showing half of the U.S. population residing in these counties…
And now this one cartoon makes it clear what the map would look like if we got rid of the Electoral College.
