Counties Won and Electoral College Posted by Wolfs Head
You will note that democrat support is mostly in the north east and the left coast. Outside of urban voluntary concentration camps the country is conservative and by far controls the vast majority of the US land mass.
It shows how really small the area of democrat support is, and it is the concentration of people in these small areas that gives them any power.
The electoral College gives the country outside of urban areas a say in the presidential election, as they represent us in the college just as our congressional representatives represent us in the house. We are NOT a democracy, whatever the dems say, but a Republic with democratically elected representatives to the House and the Electoral College.
By looking at the map, if the electors where all decided by Congressional District, the way they used to be and still are in Nebraska and Maine, I think the dem defeat would have been MUCH greater than what is is now.
As Limbaugh said, if it wasn't for the Electoral College there would be power centers in Texas, the left coast and the northeast and the country would be like the Hunger Games.
Whenever you hear dems bleating about "democracy" remember that democracy is 5 wolves and a sheep deciding what's for dinner.
