By Richard Gilbertson Majority of voters did not elect Trump, Electoral College elected Trump. Popular vote was won by Clinton. Just a fact that Trump only has 30% of the vote.

By Kirby Liberty Harris So? That is our system, made that way to stop a majority rules president. This prevents large population areas (with similar views) from always picking the president over more low populations areas (with similar views). The college stops a run away train.

By Kirby Liberty Harris 1st, I am not a conservative. 2nd, like the Founders, I am against majority rule aka mob rule and minority rule. The Founders did not want a leader picked by a run away mob mentality or let the urban centers always pick the president instead of the rural having a chance.

By Kirby Liberty Harris The Founders wanted to stagger power, so they had the people directly elect the House, the State Legislatures pick the US Senator and the voters in each state pick electors for their state and the elector number represent the state population. This way you would need the right number to select a president.

By Kirby Liberty Harris And NO, the minority does not have the habit of picking the POTUS. That has ONLY happened 4 times out of how many?
