    My family has been here since 1691. I guess that makes me an illegal immigrant. We did not have green cards.

    Because of the number of EC votes required to win a National Election and because this number is Finite, a candidate cannot just go to California and New York to win an election. Because EC votes are distributed using two factors, Population and Equal Representation of Each State small states are still in play.

    Part of that allocation is based on The Census, and is a big reason why The Left fought tooth and nail to delay the addition of the "Legal Status" question to a respondee to The Census on all Census Questionnaires. They feared being nailed with fraud for counting Illegal Immigrants in their population to gain an unfair advantage in Congress and distribution of Federal Dollars. They could lose Rep seats over such fraudulent actions.

    Distribution of Electoral Votes

    Electoral votes are allocated among the states based on the Census. Every state is allocated a number of votes equal to the number of senators and representatives in its U.S. Congressional delegation—two votes for its senators in the U.S. Senate plus a number of votes equal to the number of its members in the U. S. House of Representatives.

    Under the 23rd Amendment of the Constitution, the District of Columbia is allocated three electors and treated like a state for purposes of the Electoral College.

    The allocations below are based on the 2010 Census. They are effective for the 2012, 2016, and 2020 presidential elections.

    Total Electoral Votes: 538; Majority Needed to Elect: 270

    Trump is Putin’s puppet, and victim of blackmail. Anyone who cheers that or supports that is a fucking traitor to America. You made your choice, Comrade. If you weren’t fine with it you’d be screaming for paper ballots in all 50 states like the rest of us.
