It's too soon to get the 2016 vote totals, however some reporters contend that Clinton got more votes than Trump even though he achieved the Electoral College win.
There will be people (Democrats) who will revive the call to do away with the Electoral College and adopt a system whereby the winner of a plurality wins the election.
If the total vote count was all that mattered, presidential candidates would concentrate all their get-out-the-vote efforts on the major metropolitan areas. Voters in the big cities tend toward Democrats for reasons that we won't go into here. But the fact that they do would be bad news for those of us in flyover country without some way of spreading the vote count over a larger area.
The founding fathers knew what they were doing when they put the Electoral College in the Constitution. Let's leave it there.
