Iowa is not California; Trump won
I was just wondering, are the people of Iowa really just like the people of California? How many people in Iowa would $500,000 for a house that would sell for $75,000 in Iowa? Would we willingly pay the high taxes that the citizens of California do? I think not! As for the people of Minnesota, didn’t they elect a comedian to the U.S. Senate, twice? What a joke he was.
As for the electoral college, it is enshrined in the Constitution so that every state, no matter how populous, has a say in who shall become president (we fought a Civil War over states rights). In each state, whether red or blue, how many counties went for Trump? The number was more than overwhelmingly Trump. I, for one, don’t want the out-of-touch big cities making my choices for me!
