What an apt description.

We were talking about the difference between vote results vs the popular vote. I had always assumed that in democracy, majority rules. In the USA it seems this is totally not the case.  Here is a great video she sent me when I asked for an explanation on the system:

This really raised more questions after I viewed it. Like, why on earth is this system still in place? Or, as Gloria would say, WHAT THE HEEHAW
