I heard Limbaugh came up with this from a Renegade Republican podcast.
With all of the butthurt Liberals whining about Trump winning the Electoral vote while losing the popular vote, I thought I would present the issue and purpose of the Electoral College with an analogy.
Baseball. Specifically the World Series.
Because the WS is like the Electoral College. You have a series of up to seven games, which are played until one team wins four games. The score in each game determines the winner for that game only. The runs acquired in one game cannot be "transferred" to a subsequent or prior game to change the result of the other game. Nor can the total of runs in all the games can be totaled (the "popular vote") and that process used to determine the winner.
Because if we use the total runs method, we need to have an 8th game since both teams scored 37 runs across the seven games.
Be thankful for things like the EC. They protect you when you don't realize it.
