Show this to every liberal who wants to get rid of the Electoral College

For all the people who fell asleep in civics class…

1: There are 3,141 counties in the United States. Trump won 3,084 of them. Clinton On 57.

2: There are 62 counties in New York State. Trump won 46 of them. Clinton won 16.

3: Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.

4: In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond 6 Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only on 4 of these counties: Trump won Richmond) Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.

5: These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles. The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles.

6: 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.

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