I say: that's life. One man, one vote. More men=more votes. That doesn't change if you live near a lot of other men. What the electoral college says is that if you live in a populous city, your vote is only worth half because you don't live in a sparsely populated area. That's not to mention the loads of people whose votes don't count at all due to the winner take all system. It strips minority rights in that way.

And he's still about a month from actually becoming the POTUS.

Is being purposely vague your way of hiding some kind of intellectual deficiency? Does Russia have mind control powers?
My hands are just fine, thank you very much. And it's Trump who has mind control powers.

Of course. But don't sit there with a straight face and say that Trump won by a massive amount. Trump saying it is predictable. Goofle saying it is laughable.

I don't know if utilizing it means loving it, but either way it's quite a stupid thing to debate someone's attitudes towards something. That's really only something they can tell you.

Complete and utter bullsh*t. There has been 58 presidential elections in the US. Since 1888 there's only been two times that the winner didn't get the popular vote. GWB lost in 2000 by 0.5% of the PV. Trump lost by 2.1%. The electoral college needs to be re-tooled.

He actually lost the popular vote by a pretty large margin comparative to previous elections

I know everyone already pointed this out to you but stop being dense

The gap closed due to the recount. Should recount the whole bleeding thing in my opinion.
