It maybe a question that only interests me, but I calculated the least amount of popular votes a candidate would have been required to win in 2016 to win the election. If you take out the 50%+1 of the population of the states with the highest electoral vote/popular vote ratio(using 2016). Then in the losing coalition add 50%-1 from the states that won the electoral college then add 100% of the votes that were not in the winning electoral coalition. By my calculations a candidate could hypothetically win the electoral college with a popular vote of 29,840,000 to 106,828,000. That's just how dumb the electoral college is.
