ALEXANDER HAMILTON was the creator of the Electoral College.

Subject: 319 SQUARE MILES

I thought you'd find this interesting. I didn't understand this fully until now, and it should never be
Please read.
A 39 second read you will want to pass on. In their infinite wisdom, the United States' Founders
created the Electoral College to ensure the STATES were fairly represented. Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of the nation?
The following list of statistics has been making the rounds on the Internet. It should finally put an end to the argument as to why the Electoral College makes sense.
Do share this. It needs to be widely known and understood.
There are 3,141 counties in the United States. Trump won 3,084 of them. Clinton won 57.
There are 62 counties in New York State. Trump won 46 of them. Clinton won 16.

Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes. In the 5
counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan,
Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million
more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these
counties; Trump won Richmond)
Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton
winning the popular vote of the entire country.

These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles. The United States is
comprised of 3,797,000 square miles. When you have a country
that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory,
it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those
who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the
outcome of a national election.

Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc.)
DO NOT and SHOULD NOT speak for the rest of our country!

And...it's been verified and documented that those aforementioned 319
square miles are where the majority of our nation's problems foment.
Well worth the 39 seconds to read? Now please pass it!
I verified most of the numbers in this article with Google.
