I keep hearing people saying that since Clinton won the popular vote she should be president. This is the stupidest thing I ever heard. People are ignoring what it takes to win, and that 270 or more electoral college votes. The strategy is based on getting 270, not the popular vote. Trump said if it was going by the popular vote, he would have campaigned more in NY and Calif.
I try to explain this to people like this. When you’re playing a baseball game, the team with the most runs win. Those are the rules. Both teams know the rules and play to get the most runs. Now say The Yankees are playing The Red Sox. Yankees win 1 to 0. Only hit the Yankees got was a home run. Boston got 7 hits but no runs. Yankees win the game. But the Red Sox fans say that since they got more hits then the Yankees, they win.
It makes no sense. Even Clinton isn’t going around saying she should be president cause she got more popular votes.
