Our country is a REPUBLIC, not a Democracy. The college is there to ensure both the rural and urban areas are represented equally. In the 2016 election, Clinton won only 57 out of the 3,141 counties in the U.S. And with that alone, she won the popular vote by ~2 million votes. Why should those 57 decide who the president is over the other 3,084 counties? We need the college in the United States.
