    319 SQUARE MILES
    I thought you'd find this interesting. I didn't understand this fully until now, and it should never be
    changed.
    Please read.
    A 39 second read you will want to pass on. In their infinite wisdom, the United States' Founders
    created the Electoral College to ensure the STATES were fairly represented. Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of the nation?
    The following list of statistics has been making the rounds on the Internet. It should finally put an end to the argument as to why the Electoral College makes sense.
    Do share this. It needs to be widely known and understood.
    There are 3,141 counties in the United States. Trump won 3,084 of them. Clinton won 57.
    There are 62 counties in New York State. Trump won 46 of them. Clinton won 16.

    Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes. In the 5
    counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan,
    Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million
    more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these
    counties; Trump won Richmond)
    Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton
    winning the popular vote of the entire country.

    These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles. The United States is
    comprised of 3,797,000 square miles. When you have a country
    that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory,
    it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those
    who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the
    outcome of a national election.

    Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc.)
    DO NOT and SHOULD NOT speak for the rest of our country!

    And...it's been verified and documented that those aforementioned 319
    square miles are where the majority of our nation's problems foment.
    Well worth the 39 seconds to read? Now please pass it!
    I verified most of the numbers in this article with Google.
