Remember hearing about how Hillary Clinton lost because of low turnout? How people were not excited to come out and vote for her? About how she was millions of votes below where Obama's total?
Well, that was all a lot of BS. Here's the truth, courtesy of political numbers guru Dave Wasserman of The Cook Political Report and Fivethirtyeight:
It is utterly outrageous that someone can win by 2.5 million votes and not become President.
It is true that Hillary Clinton will not become President of the United States. However, that is not because of low turnout, or because people were not excited about her. It is because the United States of America is not good enough at democracy.
Sign if you agree: Enough of the Electoral College thwarting democracy. It's time we choose our Presidents by national popular vote.
