I'm not very good at politics but here's my take on the electoral college and I remind you I am just an average Joe here (or Josephine). But every election, no matter what the vote projection on TV says, I keep saying to my husband," But what about the electoral votes?" Because it seems like no matter what the people vote, many times the electoral votes don't reflect that. I am older and I remember when I was a young young little girl during the Kennedy-Nixon election and the suspicions afterwards that his father had bought his son, John Kennedy, the election. So many people do get suspicious of the electoral votes, and your best bet would be to look up every election on google and compare the people's votes to the electoral votes. They are supposed to be the same, but many times aren't . Keep in mind I am the WORST person on Ask to be answering your question, but it seems like you're not getting many answers, so I tried.
