During the run-up to the election, every news outlet was convinced, and stated publicly, that Hillary Clinton was leading in the electoral college count.
During the run-up to the election, when the news outlets, the Democrats and the Republicans were convinced Hillary would win the election, the news outlets, the Democrats and Hillary were very happy about what they perceived would be the outcome of the election by electoral college vote.
Republicans were scratching their heads and figuring vote counts this way and that, trying to find some imagined path to Trump beating Hillary, a path they didn't sound like even they believed.
Radio talk show hosts, such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Marc Levin and others sounded very doubtful, hoping against hope that Donald Trump could make a reasonable showing and maybe, just maybe, by some twist of fate, squeeze out enough votes to slip past Hillary.
Alas, it was not to be. Instead, Donald Trump trounced Hillary Clinton in the electoral college. He whooshed past her, leaving her in the dust, coughing and stumbling along in defeat.
And now, the same Democrats who were very happy with the electoral process when Hillary was seemingly ahead, are crying, "Foul! It's the fault of this stupid system we have. We need to get rid of the electoral college!"
Not one single time, when they won the electoral college vote, did the Democrats ever complain about the results. They never even hinted that they might want the electoral college done away with.
Funny how when the shoe is on the other foot...............
