    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.

    I think it's awesome! The lower the popular vote Trump wins with in 2020, the more fun you leftists will be with your meltdowns.

    Here's to 29,840,000!!

    Cool. Then groups in Calif Mass and NY could set up a program where millions of the excessive Dem voters in those states take up temporary legal residence in those sparely populated red states Then just take the popular vote from the locals by sheer numbers and thus take the electoral college vote as well.

    Doesn't that sound like great plan too ?

    It's great plan. They don't even have to visit the state. Just mail in a ballot from civilization. Of course that means controlling state govt as well in those states. After all why waste time with just federal. The great thing is Dems out number GOPers by a big enough margin to pull it off.

    You don't have to "live" there "in person" to be a voter in that state.

    No need to subject the to those hell holes. They can "live" and "work" via mail at the vote processing centers set up in those red states.

    Of course you love cheating and you can't just take up temp residency and vote, hell, majority in Cali and NY don't know which restroom to use and eat tide pods.

    Surely 4/15 will disagree with your "Calif" :) not posting California constipates him, :)

    If Dems out number GOPers, why is the President and Senate controlled by GOPers?

    The voting rights act of 1965 says states can impose period of time a person has to live in a state before they are allowed to vote in that state and that has been upheld by the SCOTUS.

    Hi peanut. [​IMG]

    It's not cheating. Cheating is what they do in NC as readers well know.

    Sparely populated red states get 2 senators when they aren't even as large as a congressional district. That is why you have a larger than deserved representation in the Senate.

    EC gave you the White House.

    That's is why pugs have both of those chambers.

    Dems still outnumber you Gopers in this nation.

    The EC always determines who wins the Presidency.

    Learn our system.
