Except that in the last federal somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 million more voters cast ballots for Hillary..
Yes, which is a good thing. And, there were also a record number of women who won seats in the house, also a good thing.

The U.S. is improving, but it still has a little ways to go before both genders are treated equally when it comes to politics.
but it was that goofy EC thingy that put old Boney BS in office.
I agree that Hillary's loss was partly due to the way the electoral college works. But, a candidate has to get elected under whatever system is in place at the time.

Had Hillary been a man, maybe she may have won a couple more of the battleground states. (Granted you can't tell for sure without a crystal ball, but the margins of victory were very slim in some states that Trump won.)
They should dump the EC and let the ballots speak.
I agree that would probably be a good thing.

The problem is, they need to convince enough states to get rid of the electoral college, and many of the small states (who currently have more influence despite their lower population) will probably not want to give up their power.
