"the votes of millions of people in non-swing states are effectively lost." the growing divide between who most people voted for and who actually wins and the fact that person wasn't hillary clinton are causing some democrats in congress to call on americans to reconsider the electoral college. "the electoral college seems to be getting more disconnected to the popular vote. we didn't have to worry about for 112 years and suddenly twice in 16 years have a two and a half million vote difference." the electors vote on december 19th. trump securely has 306 votes he only needs 270. president-elect trump originally criticized the electoral college, but has since said he believes it does force candidates to visit more rural communities they would otherwise ignore. in washington, i'm alex schuman. vice-president joe biden is talking about the presidential election.calling it a "substance-free spectacle."
