Trump Calls Electoral College Phoney

The election is over and Obama wins a second term. Donald Trump is ranting about this and calling for people to revolt. He tweeted several times and here are just two of his tweets so you can see he’s really upset.  See the full article here http://bitly.com/TtLN7t  .

Although his comments are strong, I wonder what the sentiment on our Electoral College process is. Trump is not the only person to ever bring up the idea that is not the way we should run elections.  Why shouldn’t  the popular vote decide who is President. Although,  if you look at Google Election results they claim Obama did win the popular vote, but not by much.   A close race that brings up the question of how much our individual vote counts.
