Gerrymandering?
Quote:If the election were based on vote count, Trump lost.  The Gerrymandering of the Republicans won the election.

And if the election were based on those who cast mail-in ballots while wearing a red hat - perhaps Santa Claus would have won.

I find it truly amusing the despair felt by Democrats - who are willing to blame anything and everything other than the policies they work toward.

Wouldn't it make more sense to turn introspective, and figure out what policies they are championing that voters don't want?

And does it make sense to any honest person that President Obama was elected twice by those same "Republican Gerrymandered" voting districts?

Truth is often the first victim when people search for someone or something to blame...

If, if, if just the voters who paid a federal imcome tax were counted, Trump gets 70% of the votes.

Yep... you can play the 'if' game all day long... with virtually innumerable variations.

I've always been quite impressed with our Constitution... it was very well written for it's time, and has done very well for our country. I quite accept that our country would be far better off if we still followed the Constitution (rather than the mess it's become.)

And the Constitution provided for the Electoral College for a reason.

Just my two cents worth...
