No one needs to investigate anything about the Electoral College. It's shortcomings are painfully apparent to anyone who looks at it. WHY it hasn't been changed is easy to understand - huge inertia, the difficulty in changing established institutions, and the desire by the minority groups it benefits (such as Donald's supporters) to fight to keep it in place. Any thinking person can understand that the candidate who got fewer votes in the last presidential election still managed to be installed as president due to the Electoral College's failings.

As far as the rest of your remark, the only one who is getting excited (and sadly, insulting) is YOU. In this you have learned well at the foot of your master, Donald, who cannot issue a sentence without insulting someone.
I think you should send a very strongly worded letter on the matter to Congress, copy to the Senate . It's time someone from the BE spoke up and made their feelings thunderously clear.

No, koop. Apparently your perceptive abilities are as strong as Donald's. Your attempt to deflect and divert the conversation won't work. It is instructive, however, that you do not have any pertinent, thoughtful comments about this subject of the Electoral College, and have given up even trying. This is no doubt because you have conceded the point, and your ridiculous (shall I say Trumpian?) responses are a futile, unsuccessful attempt on your part to save face.

So, to sum up the points we have established - 1. - The the Electoral College is a broken institution, and must be eliminated or at least given a complete overhaul: 2. - Donald is a complete fool, crooked, selfish, dimwitted, and totally incompetent (this second point only states the obvious).

The underlined part just doesn't mean what it used to. Trump has set the bar so low over the last three years that these sorts of concerns don't have the same power.

Your subsequent comment - "Our reality has really changed" - sums it up neatly.

The Brexit situation in the UK is the same. Truth doesn't matter as much as it used to. Where are the consequences for lying?

I've never known you to be rude. Incessant flirting and occasional request for nude pictures sure. But never any rudeness.

She's rude in the right sort of way. She only uses her powers for good.

Are you sure you're actually British? The concept of likeable rudeness shouldn't be this alien to you if you are.

I think your point is on target and especially if a particular region is populated with people that hold a majority conservative slant. But America is a very migratory nation with large populations moving into areas of the country and thus changing the politics in that region. Nevada, Virginia are but two examples of states that were once reliable conservative voting blocks but are now dependable democrat strong holds. That is a big reason why all the polls including those over at rabbit republican channel Fox News has all three top democrats beating Trump in a head to head match up. That also explains why Trump pulled this whole Ukraine blunder hoping to get rid of his main rivals by manufacturing fake dirt.

Trump and Co's crazy antics might appeal to enough voters in conservative states but his ability to win in blue states require democrats to make the decision to sit on the side lines. And that blue and independent voter influence can not be ignored by republican senators in democrat states, or even in purple states that have statewide democrat influence like Arizona, North Carolina, ect.

Many of these republican senators want to turn on Trump(they don't like or admire him) because they truly do dislike him and his corruption, but they can only do so if they feel his criminal actions are so egregious that even the most loyal republican voter will understand. That is the reason why former Arizona senator Jeff Flake has recently commented that if the vote was held anonymously there would definitely be at least 30 to 35 republican senators that would vote to impeach.
The dirt is slowly dripping out and don't be surprised if sloppy cover-up Trump don't have several more smoking guns out there.

This reminds me of the shop where we used to have to go to get the Little Lion's wrestling gear, accompanied by many giggles.
