    Very thorough Mitchell, well done. You mentioned some very interesting stats.
    I don’t understand how the USA can call itself “The Great Democracy” when they ignore the outcome of the popular vote. I thought the basis of a true democracy was “one man, one vote”. Also, in this day of instant mass communication, the Electoral College is no longer necessary and, as been shown in this election, can result in the opposite of what the voting majority actually want. Doesn’t it say somewhere, in another important document, “…..We, the people…..”?
