We have to remember the Electoral College was not designed because people were worried about Idaho not having enough votes’

Watch the fat-assed, functional illiterate negro's comments at the link. She is ignorant of the fact that this is a constitutional republic with each state having equal status insofar as a national election goes. In a republic, states or provinces have equal weight and their sovereignty will always be honored.

Too many Democrats mimic the Chinese Maoist/Communist movements to attack tried and true laws and traditions limiting lawlessness, mob power, misuse of the law, and violence against political opponents. The Electoral College represents the individual state popular vote results in all qualifying States.

Republicans place their trust in the Constitution - although they may bemoan the excessive use of the Commerce Clause and other clauses to expand the size and actions of the federal government which in many cases has created a large bureaucratic mess with poorly defined limits on executing laws and which has been exempted from the normal appropriations process.

We have to remember the Electoral College was not designed because people were worried about Idaho not having enough votes

Idaho did not become a state until 1890.

Clinton won the popular vole by approx. 1.5 million votes. In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Quee~ s) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinlon only won 4 of these counties, Trump won Richmond)

That recitation is a curious admixture of three counties and two burroughs, indicating the author did not know the difference between the counties and burroughs, and did not make an effort to find out.

The counties which comprise NYC are Bronx, Kings, New York, Richmond, and Queens.

The members of the union formed by the Constitution are the States so ratifying the same. Since the first election of George Washington, the president has been elected by the members of the union, i.e., the States, and not by the people, either as individuals or as a consolidated group. Everyone knows George Washington was elected unanimously. Less know is that the official vote was 10-0. There were then 11 states in the union, NC and RI having not ratified. Anti-Federalist NY was undergoing political strife and did not organize any delegate to vote in the Electoral College, which for that election featured one vote for each member state.

Watch the fat-assed, functional illiterate negro's comments at the link. She is ignorant of the fact that this is a constitutional republic with each state having equal status insofar as a national election goes.

It would appear that the author is ignorant of the fact that each state does not have equal status insofar as a national election goes.

There are effectively 51 seperate elections, one in each state, plus D.C. The Federal government sets the date of the Federal election. The States individually supervise and regulate the elections themselves. States have chosen to hold popular vote elections, but there is no constitutional impediment to any state deciding to abolish the popular vote and return to have the State legislature select the State delegates to the Electoral College. The only persons who have a Constitutional right or duty to vote for President are the delegates to the Electoral College. There is no constitutional right for any ordinary citizen, man or woman, to vote in a Presidential election.

Art. 2, Sec. 2, "Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators or Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress...."

Art. 1, Sec. 3, "The Number of Representatives shall not exceed one for every thirty Thousand, but each State shall have at Least one Representative...."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reapportionment_Act_of_1929

The number of representatives was set to 435 by Congress with the Apportionment Act of 1911. Congress moved to make that number permanent in 1929 and it has remained there ever since.

The Reapportionment Act of 1929 (ch. 28, 71 Stat. 21, 2 U.S.C. § 2a)

As codified at 2 U.S.C. § 2a:

https://law.justia.com/codes/us/2016/title-2/chapter-1/sec.-2a/

2016 US Code
Title 2 - The Congress
Chapter 1 - Election of Senators and Representatives
Sec. 2a - Reapportionment of Representatives; time and manner; existing decennial census figures as basis; statement by President; duty of clerk

2 U.S.C. § 2a

§2a. Reapportionment of Representatives; time and manner; existing decennial census figures as basis; statement by President; duty of clerk

(a) On the first day, or within one week thereafter, of the first regular session of the Eighty-second Congress and of each fifth Congress thereafter, the President shall transmit to the Congress a statement showing the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed, as ascertained under the seventeenth and each subsequent decennial census of the population, and the number of Representatives to which each State would be entitled under an apportionment of the then existing number of Representatives by the method known as the method of equal proportions, no State to receive less than one Member.

(b) Each State shall be entitled, in the Eighty-third Congress and in each Congress thereafter until the taking effect of a reapportionment under this section or subsequent statute, to the number of Representatives shown in the statement required by subsection (a) of this section, no State to receive less than one Member. It shall be the duty of the Clerk of the House of Representatives, within fifteen calendar days after the receipt of such statement, to send to the executive of each State a certificate of the number of Representatives to which such State is entitled under this section. In case of a vacancy in the office of Clerk, or of his absence or inability to discharge this duty, then such duty shall devolve upon the Sergeant at Arms of the House of Representatives.

(c) Until a State is redistricted in the manner provided by the law thereof after any apportionment, the Representatives to which such State is entitled under such apportionment shall be elected in the following manner: (1) If there is no change in the number of Representatives, they shall be elected from the districts then prescribed by the law of such State, and if any of them are elected from the State at large they shall continue to be so elected; (2) if there is an increase in the number of Representatives, such additional Representative or Representatives shall be elected from the State at large and the other Representatives from the districts then prescribed by the law of such State; (3) if there is a decrease in the number of Representatives but the number of districts in such State is equal to such decreased number of Representatives, they shall be elected from the districts then prescribed by the law of such State; (4) if there is a decrease in the number of Representatives but the number of districts in such State is less than such number of Representatives, the number of Representatives by which such number of districts is exceeded shall be elected from the State at large and the other Representatives from the districts then prescribed by the law of such State; or (5) if there is a decrease in the number of Representatives and the number of districts in such State exceeds such decreased number of Representatives, they shall be elected from the State at large.

1941—Act Nov. 15, 1941, provided for reapportionment based on seventeenth and subsequent decennial censuses.

1940—Act Apr. 25, 1940, provided for reapportionment based on sixteenth decennial census.

TERMINATION OF REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

For termination, effective May 15, 2000, of provisions of law requiring submittal to Congress of any annual, semiannual, or other regular periodic report listed in House Document No. 103–7 (in which the report required by subsec. (a) of this section is listed on page 17), see section 3003 of Pub. L. 104–66, as amended, set out as a note under section 1113 of Title 31, Money and Finance.

CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISIONS

Apportionment of Representatives among the several States, see Const. Art. I, §2, cl. 3, and Amend. XIV, §2.

TEMPORARY INCREASE IN MEMBERSHIP

Representation of States of Alaska and Hawaii in House of Representatives as not affecting basis of apportionment established by this section, see section 9 of Pub. L. 85–508, July 7, 1958, 72 Stat. 339, set out as a note preceding section 21 of Title 48, Territories and Insular Possessions, and section 8 of Pub. L. 86–3, Mar. 18, 1959, 73 Stat. 4, set out as a note preceding section 491 of Title 48.

435 State Representatives are authorized in Congress.

100 senators are authorized in Congress.

The 23rd Amendment provided that the District of Columbia be afforded 3 electors, as if it were a state, but under no circumstances may it have greater representation than the least populous state.

435 State Representatives, plus 100 State Senators equals 535 State delegates to the Electoral College. Add three more delegates for the District of Columbia (a Federal territory) and the grand total is 538.

California, with 53 delegates as of the 2010 Census, is more equal than the least populous State, Wyoming, with its 3 delegates to the Electoral College. Some states are definitely more equal than others.

Assigning representatives to States is done according to the most recent Census, in accordance with the Constitution. The Census is a head count, not a citizen count. An alien, legal or illegal, resident in California, counts toward the Census population total which entitles California to 53 Representatives in Congress, and delegates to the Electoral College.
