It’s only happened five times in our history. The winner of the presidential race wins the Electoral College but loses the popular vote. The elections of 1824, 1876, 1888, 2000, and 2016 saw a president be elected in this manner. And yet, we’ve survived. Also, this has only happened five times. It’s rare, but 2016 was different because of Trump. Democrats were lusting for Hillary Clinton to win. The media were hoping she would win, but she didn’t. She lost. She’s a two-time loser. She will never be president. Still, liberals were seething over the results. They still are. So, what do they do? Well, they start the ‘abolish the Electoral College’ mantra. The system in which we’ve picked our president was attacked as undemocratic and racist. Cue the eye rolls. In Colorado, they’re getting the ball rolling by trying to pass legislation that ties the state’s electoral votes to whoever wins the popular vote (via Denver Post):
