But he got less votes.

So how is that democratic?

Clue's in the name really: United STATES of America. Each state must be represented fairly, or they wouldn't have agreed to form a union in the first place. The Founding Fathers set it up this way to prevent small groups of powerful people from taking over the large population centres (e.g. California and New York) and then dominating the politics of the entire country.

Only Hillary Clinton could consider this a victory for the Democrats!
