Popular vote = democratic vote

USA elections work just fine

All but one

You can continue to Champion a process that allows the minority to rule over the majority but we will all suffer the consequences

People don't elect the President, STATES DO. The people in each state vote, and then Electors are appointed by the state, and counted. Do you not know this? We are not a Democracy, we are a Constitutional Representative Republic and a collection of STATES. The less populace STATES wanted to make sure they wouldn't get steam rolled by the MOB.

We do NOT know how the majority felt in the last election, because neither candidate was trying to win a "popular vote" that wasn't being sought.

So, you want pure majority rules on everything?

You felt California should not have allowed gay marriage when they voted against it?

Yeah that would work just fine if each State's electoral votes were exactly tied to its population

one citizen one vote case closed

Democracy equals majority rule plain and simple

If California voted against gay marriage they should not enact it

And if the majority were to vote in favor of putting debtors into slavery?
