More Republican math: Electors' votes matter more than citizens' votes

Yesterday, in one of my posts, I quoted the AP: “Hillary Clinton’s lead in the popular vote is now at 2,864,974.”

CNN reports that the count in the electoral college was 306 to 232 favoring Trump. So to compare apples to apples, let’s look at the difference: 174 electoral votes is what tipped it to Trump.

Now consider this ratio of those differences: 2,864,974 ÷ 174. The result of that division is 16,465.

So one electoral college vote offsets 16,465 popular votes. Or, to put it in terms of Republican math: 1 > 16465.
