This is not right. The Electoral College that is.

I agree with the previous post that “this is not right”. The Electoral College is antiquated and needs to be eliminated. Everybody’s vote does not count with an electoral college. The majority vote eliminates the minority on a state by state basis. I don’t know that I can trust the “2016 National Popular Vote Tracker”, as referenced above. The numbers don’t jive. It claims Hillary won with a 1% margin over Trump, yet the actual numbers would indicate a 2% margin in the popular vote. Which is it? Shouldn’t a stat tracker be accurate. Irregardless, 10% of the popular vote went to other candidates. Many voters in California could not support either Hillary or Trump. It was already known before the polls opened, that our Democratic state would be going to Hillary. Many voters simply threw their vote away on principle. If their vote actually counted without the electoral college involved, many voters would have voted differently. Trump won by the rules in place. I don’t believe our country was voting for either candidate, as much as they were voting against the other candidate. This election was very literally based on the lesser of two evils. Everyone seems to have a different take on what that looks like.

“Irregardless” is nonstandard. Regardless is an actual word.
