Not illigit, and why the Electoral College is genious

(This essay is not mine, although I edited a bit, and I will source it as soon as I can.)

If you think a Trump presidency is illegitimate you should probably read this and get ya some knowledge.

We hear a cacophony of blaring and bleating from the media and the Hillary gaggle that she won the popular vote and therefore she should be president, 60,839,497 to 60,265,847. 47.8% to 47,3% with the remaining 4.9% going to the other candidates.

But here is the rest of the story:

Trump won the popular vote in 31 states to her 19 and DC. 62% to her 38%.
Trump led in the total popular vote for all states except California.

Hillary won California 5,860,714 to Trump’s 3,151,821. 61.6% to 33.1% exclusive of the other candidates. Thus California alone gave Hillary the popular vote for all states as claimed by the Democrats and their media stooges.

But deduct her California vote from her national vote leaving her with 54,978,783, and deduct Trump’s California vote from his national total, leaving him with 57,113.976, he wins in a landslide in the other 49 states and D.C., 51.3% to her 48.7%.

So, in effect, Hillary was elected president of California and Trump was elected president of the rest of the country by a substantial margin.

This exemplifies the wisdom of the Electoral College, to prevent the vote of any one high-populace state from overriding the vote of the others. Trump’s Campaign Manager,
Kellyanne Conway, whose expertise is polling, saw this early on and devised
her strategy of “6 pathways to the White House”.

This meant ignoring California with its huge Democrat majority and going after the states
that would give him the necessary electoral votes to win, FL, NC, MI, PA, OH, and WI.

At its lowest point since the civil war, could this mean the end of the Democrat Party? With Trump as president, the Republican Party has:
1) The Presidency.
2) A majority of the House of Representatives.
3) A majority of the Senate.
4) Almost two-thirds of all the governorships.
5) Total control of the statehouses in almost two-thirds of all the states.
And in the near future, Republicans will be able to add:
6) A majority of the Supreme Court.

The above has never happened before in American history.

 Think about that and let it sink in for a moment.

 And it’s all because of one reason: Barack Obama’s forcing his extreme far-left agenda on a largely unwilling country by executive orders, left wing judges, and obsequious bureaucrats.

It’s important to pass this on. With the demand that we do away with the Electoral College and take the popular vote being pushed by the media, etc, all Americans need to know that the Electoral College is working exactly as our Founding Fathers intended. By the way, that pathetic ad with actors trying to influence the EC to reject Trump saying that the reason for the EC is to prevent a demagogue from taking power was 99.9% wrong.
For excellent, short, explanations of the E.C., put together months before the election:

What would the California vote have been if that state had a voter I.D. law? The fact that the Democrats so vehemently oppose voter I.D. (like they do in my home state) strongly supports my belief that voter fraud is an important Democrat constituency.

I'm not going to bother reading this BS...also, you're a hypocrite, Rickvid--since your party and our new life long con artist president select Trump started the racist birther movement saying that Obama was not please stop pretending to be a "conservative" and lecturing the Left about your illegitimate POTUS.

Your POTUS had to cheat to win, Hillary won by 3 million votes, get used to the LEFT saying it because it's reality.

I'm wondering what your "CONSERVATIVE" POTUS and his "CONSERVATIVE" wife does first, along with their BFF, PUTIN to help the middle class... LOL> please, you're not fooling anyone with this BS.

Anonymous, yep... Clinton won the presidency... if you ignore the constitution.

I understand why the left would like to continue that long-established Democrat tradition.

Hated Hillary and never saw any reason to change my mind. In the primaries I had three whom I liked and as each of those dropped out I reluctantly backed Trump. Trump is still a Boob but He is a useful boob and he gave us a SCOTUS pick I loved. I now think of the parties as the uniparty and they are really alarmed by Trump. The repub branch of the uniparty are actively trying to undo the election results because if that stupid booby Trump can win they all are in danger of losing their sinecures, ie high public positions that require no work or talent. From the Latin, sine = "without" and cura = "care" is the very definition of today's politicians. Poltroons are all highly alarmed, Why, they might have to seek 'work' like one of the common herd. It is not to be borne. Trump must be discredited and destroyed.

I saw that someone above addressed the "birther" issue, and wrote that Trump was the first. Actually, that seems not to have been the case. But while Hillary preceded Trump,...

...she was not the first "birther."

So, who was the first "birther" you ask? None other than Barack HUSSEIN Obama, himself.

So, when he'll profit more from it, he'll claim he was born in Kenya. And when not, then he'll claim he wasn't. Regardless of where he was born, though, the guy is a pathological liar and cannot be trusted. And that is far more important, IMO.

the idea of the Electoral College, I'd state it results in the likelihood of most of the general population voting in favor of an applicant that loses the decision, which isn't extraordinary, regardless of who misfortunes. help me with my homework. In the latest case, most of the general population cast a ballot and lost by a huge margin, proposing we presumably should reconsider the circulation of discretionary votes.

In Best proofreading services opinion popular voting is a better idea because the winner of the presidency must get a majority of the electoral votes, the candidates of s special interest parties have no chance to win—and for that reason they cannot get sufficient financing and other support to mount a serious campaign
