A 39 second ‘Must Read’ you will want to pass on. 

In their infinite wisdom, the United States’ Founders created the Electoral College to ensure the STATES were fairly represented. Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of the nation? The following list of statistics has been making the rounds on the Internet. It should finally put an end to the argument as to why the Electoral College makes sense.

Do share this. It needs to be widely known and understood:

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

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

Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
-       In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 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. 

These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles. 
-       The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles. 
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.) DO NOT and SHOULD NOT speak for the rest of our country!'s been verified and documented that those aforementioned 319 square miles are where the majority of our nation’s problems foment. 

Well worth the 39 seconds to read?

Our founders were indeed the smartest of men and when you take the time to study the Federalist papers as well you understand just how smart they really were.
Trump won - by a landslide majority.
Thanks for posting Joe - those who are not being taught accurate History need to see this.

"In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens)..."

To bad the author doesn't know that Manhattan is actually New York County and Brooklyn is King's County, but hey at least he got the fact that Staten Island is Richmond County.

I never trust articles that can't get basic info correct.

Great analysis that tells the story of where Hillary's supporters lived and probably mostly still do. As for getting the NYC area county names wrong, naming just the boroughs would give most readers a better picture.

11:35 then why was Staten Island called Richmond County in the article. That was my biggest problem either use the county names or the borough names not mix and match. Very piss poor journalism.

8:56 Typical of low info voters not to question or critique what they read.
