The people of the United States of America did not elect Trump as their president. A group of electoral college representatives — who did not do their duty of ensuring that a person unfit for office never actually makes it to the presidency — did. If the country was to still utilize this archaic electoral system, it should have at least been used properly as designed by our forefathers. But whatever, that’s not the point of this article.
We all know that Hillary got millions of more votes than Trump. But looking at the below chart (via Washington Post) really helps put things into clear perspective. Over 70 percent of eligible American voters did NOT vote for Trump. Again, a group of 538 electors did.
Feel free to use this visual when reminding folks of that.
