The revelations just mentioned in several media outlets including Fox just now that over 200 precincts in Detroit had more votes than voters underlines how questionable HRCs popular vote is. JFKs win in 1960 was clearly caused by voter fraud in Texas and especially Chicago. Theres a tradition of this in the Democratic party especially along the Mexican border.now, while I've not seen those particular maps before, I was aware of the urban/rural breakdown of Rep/Dem support.
nothing unique about that at all.
I've seen similar maps for England.
as the Yanks say - guns don't kill people.
it's people that kill people.
now, I say -
the mountains, the lakes the prairies, the forests of the USA don't vote.
it's the people who vote.
I agree with you when you say -
" What may be important to the people living in the metropolitan coastal areas might not be important to those living outside of them"
I imagine that you might agree with me when I say -
What may be important to the people living in the affluent leafy suburbs of Dublin might not be important to those living outside of them !
however, I wouldn't be proposing a US Style Electoral College System here, anytime soon.
& one could also say -
What may be important to the rich neighbours of Trump Towers might not be important to those living in impoverished districts of Harlem, only a few miles away.
& sadly - I don't think that the EC System does much for them though.
I think that was your 4th attempt, & sorry you failed yet again to answer the simple question -
how did the Electoral College System "protect State rights" in the recent Presidential Election ?
well - i'll answer it for you -
it's very simple IMO.
the EC System didn't protect anything.
it did however ensure that the candidate who lost the popular vote by close to three million votes, succeeded in being elected President of the USA.
