The Electoral College encourages both candidates to focus on the swing States because the popular vote does not matter. If the presidential election was a popular vote Trump’s tactics would have been different, and he would have beat Clinton in the Popular vote. As it was he ignored the population density centres like New York, Washington DC, Seattle and Los Angeles because they were already lost, and reducing the margin of the loss gained him nothing. Trump won the vast majority of the territory of the USA, which is what is important in the Electoral College.
In the 1970’s psychologists carried out experiments on rats where the food and water supplies were adequate but the population density was steadily increased. At a certain point the rats became insane and turned on each other, ripping each other apart till the population density reduced. It is no coincidence that Democrat voters are overwhelmingly from high-density urban hives where humanity are forced to live in densities unnatural for our species. Like the rats they turn on each other, rioting in the streets, attacking Police, voting democrat, and foaming at the mouth when they lose. Disagree? Do you have a better explanation for the irrational behaviour of the Democrats during and after the Election?
It is as if a hive of Bees rejected their Queen. Madness.
