TRUMP TWEETS: Explains the difference between Popular Vote and Electoral College

A movement to abandon the Electoral College in favor of the nationwide Popular vote for presidential elections is picking up steam among Democrats.

Twelve states and the District of Columbia have now joined the movement, with the most recent being Colorado on Friday. Other states on board are California, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington.

Tuesday evening, President Trump admitted in a two-part Twitter statement that he used to favor the Popular Vote idea, but has now realized it is not good for the United States, as small states and the entire Midwest would end up not having any say in the elections.  He tweeted:

Campaigning for the Popular Vote is much easier & different than campaigning for the Electoral College. It’s like training for the 100 yard dash vs. a marathon. The brilliance of the Electoral College is that you must go to many States to win.

With the Popular Vote, you go to just the large States – the Cities would end up running the Country. Smaller States & the entire Midwest would end up losing all power – & we can’t let that happen. I used to like the idea of the Popular Vote, but now realize the Electoral College is far better for the U.S.A.
