Democrats like to think that the popular vote has meaning. Well, this quick demonstration will illustrate to you that it does not have meaning, at least not on a National Scale. What I am about to demonstrate to you is that the reason the Popular Vote will almost ALWAYS favor the Democrats is because the Two LARGE Democrat States, are unbalanced. Statistically, you would expect that the political ideology of any population would fall along a normal distribution; A Bell Curve. Further, the larger the population, the more normalized it should become. As such it is totally reasonable to think a small spit of a state like Wyoming would be skewed 60/40 one way or the other, but you would not expect this in a LARGE state like Texas, California, New York or Florida. BUT .. that is exactly what we find for the two Big Blues. Both California and New York are abnormal (60/40), and out of balance with what a normal distribution would predict, whereas both Texas and Florida are pretty close to 50/50. For comparison's sake, consider the following: Texas (52/48) vs New York (60/40). If we use total population to represent the voting populations, Texas with 30 Million People split 15.4 million for Trump, 14.6 million for Clinton. New York with only 20 Million People split 8 million for Trump and 12 million for Clinton. Because TEXAS is the larger population, they carry 38 or 39 EC votes, whereas New York, with the a smaller population only as 29 EC votes. The Electoral College gives the Election to Trump because Texas is the Larger Population and therefore has a larger population interests in the race. HOWEVER ..... Clinton wins the Popular Vote, 26 Million to 23 Million. As I said, this should not be, but it is .... because NEW YORK is an abnormal state, with a population that does not fall along a normal distribution, but rather is a skewed population of Leftists. I've heard is said time and time again by leftists that the EC is a farce that gives unjust representation to small, uninhabited states, YET ... the above example PROVES that the EC actually protects the LARGER STATE (TEXAS) from the smaller state (New York). In this case, the EC protects the Nation from a smaller state with an abnormally skewed population that should not statistically exists. ON A NATIONAL LEVEL ... the EC protects the Greater Population of 260 Million people from the skewed abnormal distribution in two smaller populations (California - 41 Million; and New York - 20 Million) that are large enough that their distribution should look more like Texas and Florida.
