The Value of the Electoral College
Hillary won California 5,860,714 to Trump’s 3,151,821. 61.6% to 33.1% exclusive of the other candidates.
But deduct her California vote from her national vote leaves her with 54,978,783 and deduct Trump’s California vote from his national total, leaves him with 57,113,976, he wins in a landslide in the 49 other states, 51.3% to her 48.7%. So, in effect, Hillary was elected President of California and Trump was elected President of the rest of the country by a substantial margin.
This exemplifies the wisdom of the Electoral College, to prevent the vote of any one populace state from overriding the vote of the others.
Trump’s Campaign Manager, Kellyanne Conway, whose expertise is polling, saw this early on and devised her strategy of “6 pathways to the White House”. This meant ignoring California with its huge Democratic majority and going after the states that would give Trump the necessary Electoral College votes to win: FL, NC, MI, PA, OH, and WI.
