Brian Kolfage quotes Allen West to defend the electoral college

Here we don’t necessarily go against the electoral college, but rather explain the argument against it.

Wrap your brain around this: 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 approximately 2 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.) 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, do you think that vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election? - Allen West

Anti-Myth Machine There are more people the blue counties individually than there are in the red counties individually. Trees, mountains, prairies and deserts do not have the right to vote. While the popular vote is not law, the justification is that people vote, acres do not.
