The Electoral College Picks the president

We all know the outcome of the election. Donald Trump won the presidency. We had previously looked at how the electoral college works. In theory you could get more votes and still lose the presidency. Hillary Clinton Got more votes than Donald Trump

http://www.cnn.com/2016/11/09/politics/donald-trump-hillary-clinton-popular-vote/

 

Donald Trump got 278 Electoral Votes  Hillary Clinton got 218 electoral votes.

Hillary Clinton got  59,755,284 votes, Donald Trump got slightly less than that 59,535,522.

Hillary Clinton got more votes but loss the election because the places that Donald Trump got them in  gave him more electoral votes.

So what you think.  Is the Electoral College a good thing for the country or should it be done away with? What is your opinion?

    I think that the Electoral Collage Should be banned because it is just more voting. And the person that is winning should have to get more Popular votes to win the election. But Hillary Clinton losed by 218 electoral votes in the election to donald trump . Donald Trump had 278 electoral votes.

    My opinion is that the Electoral Collage is fair because the president can elect a good vote.
    The Electoral Collage can be helpful for the president if he can get popular votes too. A president’s votes can be popular for

    i think the electoral college is not fair because if you have the most votes you still lose and the person that has less votes will win anyway. i think they should make it better by splitting electoral votes.

    I think we should get rid of the electoral college because we need to let the people have their vote count. Under the electoral college you can have less votes and still win. That is not DEMOCRACY!!! UGHHHHHH!

  15. I think the electoral college is not fair. because you can more popular v otes in thecountry and still lose and I think we should get rid of it. In the old days they needed it because no one could access information. So they need smart people to pick but now in the upgraded future everyone knows all about the election.
