Do You Understand the Electoral College?

Good video - needs to explain more about the population concentration in the cities being prevented from overpowering the sparse rural areas.

A reminder that the electoral college works both ways. Nixon won the popular vote in more individual states yet Kennedy was elected by the electoral college.

The entire purpose of the electoral college was to prevent massive centralized population centers (e.g. New York City, Los Angeles & San Francisco) from imposing their will upon the rest of the country and it seems to have worked just as intended in the 2016 election.
