OP needs to learn two things:

1. How our elections work.

2. Nobody "won" the popular vote, because there is no popular vote contest.

If they did that, they'd only be left with open borders as their platform.

Thanks for forcing democracy on us in South Africa worked out great

I'm not suggesting that the people burn down the White House or anything crazy like that but I wouldn't be shocked if something crazy happened...

disregard the majorities will and you will suffer the consequences in a long run... ask a South African
Once again we are a constitutional republic not democracy i guess your school didn't teach you that!

Just ask Trumps ego and see who won the popular vote. All those millions more that Hillary won he has tried and tried to say were illegal votes.

On his part. Trump has failed miserably, and made a mockery on this part.


" President has a moral and morale-boosting role, as a figurehead for the nation both at home and overseas. In many ways, while it’s not mentioned in the Constitution, it’s perhaps the President’s most powerful tool and function. "

Trump will get millions more votes this time. Before he was an unknown quantity. Now we have seen all the things he's accomplished in less than one term. Only people who are deranged won't vote for him.


Demand voter ID!

Wait.

Hillary Clinton won the popular vote against Obama in 2008.

As usual, the leftists hold a double standard.

FAKE president Donald Trump (will America accept another election loser as president?


TRANSLATION: I hate the way the U.S. Constitution calls for our electing our President. So I'll call the victors names and try to **** of enough people that mob rule will take over and turf out the ones I don't like.

Ok, Ok, time for a refresher course, so that the less knowledgeable democrats can fully understand the electoral vote, and the reasons for it.

Let's use a very simple example here.

Imagine we are a united states with only four states, not fifty.
In one state, 25 million people reside.
In another, one hundred thousand reside, while in the remaining states there are roughly 2 million in each state.

Now, it is election time, and the state with the 25 million, just by shear numbers, is the state that will control who wins the election, if the popular vote is the criteria for choosing the president.
The combined vote of the other states would not come close to the vote count of the state with 25 million voters.
The electoral college was set up to guarantee that ALL states would have equal representation regarding the voting process .
The college uses a % of the vote of each state, and with that %, votes who will win the presidency.
This way, ALL states have a chance of who will be president, not just the one with the most voters.

Why do dems, have a difficult time of understanding what the college is all about?

Bob.

No, America won't accept another loser, which is why neither Hillary nor Biden will get the Demwit nomination.
