    Yet more people still voted for Hillary. His election is due to a quirk in the electoral college, and a lot of unethical behavior by the right, not due to the American people's choice.

    A quirk in the electoral college? It's not a quirk nitwit, it's by design. Will you Libs every learn to read and understand the purpose of the electoral college? That's a rhetorical question, I know you won't.

    I am aware of how the electoral college works, and how occasionally it prevents the one with the most votes from winning.

    And that the founders were aware that could happen and still acknowledged that it was the preferred system. Wide, broad support across the entire country was the goal, not concentrated power in large populated states.

    i have read and know what the founder's intent for the electoral college, and what the states later turned the electors in to... a winner take ALL, was NOT, and never was, our founders intent.

    I think it is YOU who has not read up on it and the history of it and the papers written about it by the creators of it, madison and hamilton! federalist papers #68...

    the electoral college needs to stay imo, but states should not be able to force electors issued to the states by their population/congressmen, to be given out to a WINNER TAKE ALL candidate...the electors representing state us congressmen should vote as the population,OR their conscience, the 2 extra electors issued to every state, both small and large, should cast their votes for the State winner....these 2 electors representing U.S. senators are what give small states the advantage that our founders wanted.

    States can do what they want. Nebraska and Maine do not have winner take all system. Most states realize it is in their best interest to have a winner take all system. Otherwise they marginalize themselves. Why else would Trump and Hillary barely campaign in large states like New York, Texas and California yet spend so much time in smaller states like Colorado and Wisconsin? And if you are truly concerned with preserving the original intent of the constitution then you should be lobbying for repeal of the 17th Amendment which removed representation of the states in the federal government.

    Well, when Trump sets up an email server in his bathroom, to avoid any oversight (and the only reason you do that is if you are doing something shady and you don't want any oversight to know) then deletes them against the law to avoid, AGAIN said oversight, you let us know.

    But trying to say things have been unfair against Hillary is a total joke.

    Things have been MORE than fair since people have done far less and now are in JAIL.

    While Hillary the corrupt stays out of jail because of a media, DOJ, and DNC that are equally corrupt and help her cover up.

    Obama is out for revenge, so beware

    If Obama and Putin meet again in person, it would not surprise me if Obama hits him with his purse.

    Exactly. If you think DNC staffers weren't big on Sanders, I can only imagine what RNC staffers were saying about Trump...
