    This is big time, the same thing happened here in Mi . More proof the wrong person won the election.
    I doubt the polls were wrong, they didn't take into account gerrymandering and the extent of it.

    Take Mi for example: one can do by partisan or racial divide. To get a better understanding read the whole
    article. Every 10 years a census is taken to see population of a state, an a change in population changes the electoral college points. Due to changes in pop , congressional lines are changed.
    All it takes is a few votes for the pop. vote to be null and void.

    Gerrymandering in Michigan, explained | Capital News Service

    And well you know how much Mi was in play this time, along with WI and NC. Mi and those state, do not divide the Electoral College points, as far as I know only 2 states do. So if a state has 20 Electoral College points and 11 of them go Dem , the Dems get all 20. They say MI EC goes by the maj vote , but it really doesn't.

    Penelope, sweet dear, perhaps you should put on some leggings and go to the mall. You don't understand what gerrymandering does, but I'll bet you can find a great deal on sweaters at Nordstroms.
