This whole thread has been about discussing 1 possible reason why Hillary lost, and if A or B was behind it, and how big a difference it made. There also has been another discussion of the popular vote vs the electoral college and what the "perfect" system would be.
Reasons Hillary lost. Obama said "Kill coal". Hillary echoed "Kill coal".
Election. Let me suggest an alternative to the electoral college as is, or the popular vote, counties.
Pennsylvania has 67 counties. Trump won 58, Hillary won 9. Ohio has 88 counties. Trump won 81, Hillary won 7. West Virginia... Doesn't matter how many they have, Trump won them all, Hillary 0.
Seems coal killed Hillary rather than the other way around. Goldman Sachs. Simply deplorable.
