Original Message Even most Trump supporters probably do not realize that Trump WON the nationwide popular vote if one excludes California!! (and this INCLUDES that entire Northeast super liberal part of the country)

Trump did NOT campaign in California
Trump did NOT spend money to buy media time in California

Trump just wrote the state of California off during the election ... since under the electoral college system it would be WASTED TIME and MONEY to campaign in a state that was a guarantee for Hillary (ditto the entire North East, Illinois, Washington, Oregon, and New Mexico).

I knew California went BIG for Hillary (the BIGNESS of the difference being caused by Trump's ignoring the state), but I didn't realize how much it actually swung the national popular vote towards Hillary (by 4,269,978 votes).

The 2016 election is a PERFECT EXAMPLE of why every middle size and smaller size state in the entire country should be AGAINST the changing of the Electoral College System!! Their votes WOULD NOT COUNT if that was done!!
