Kresta in the Afternoon – November 23, 2016 – Hour 2

+  Why We Use the Electoral College

  • Description: Donald Trump is projected to finish with 306 Electoral votes, 74 more than Hillary Clinton and more than enough to win the election. However, official vote counts show that Clinton will win the popular vote by nearly 2 million votes, largely thanks to her massive leads in New York and California. Petitions around the country have called for the removal of the Electoral College and have even demanded that electors ignore their state's result and elect Clinton president. Jarrett Stepman joins us to explain why the US uses an Electoral College rather than a popular vote.
