    Safe space stat! I guess no free stuff for them. Time to take off the pampers and get real jobs, snowflakes.

    Suck it up, buttercup. Trump will whip your sorry asses into shape.

    The entire nauseating story here.

    add to them the pansies trying to protest in the streets everywhere. bunch of millenial babies who can't organize very well and are doing nothing but carrying signs with curse words and jumping in front of the TV Cameras and swearing. It's amazing to see these 20 somethings acting like 9yr olds on crack.

    Fearing for their families? Are the midterms after Jan. 20th, 2017? No, then suck it up ... my goodness. A midterm this month (probably tomorrow or sometime this week) is made optional because Trump is going to become president in 2 and quarter months.

    I swear ... the more you read about some of these Hillary supporters on the internet, the more sadder it gets.

    Well ... might as well join them right?

    Dear MacRumors PRSI mods, my feelings have been hurt with Hillary's loss. I am truly in a state of panic and dismay. I am not sure how I will be able to live now. Could you please unban jkcerda, it will make me feel better. Please ... I can't ... just can't see the point of living anymore. Trump scares me very badly. jkcerda will make me feel better. Please ....-----

    Unfortunately all these everyone-gets-a-trophy pansies are a growing group.

    Boo hooo. Scary to think that some of these pansies might be running for a higher job, or even president one day.

    The situation on college campuses is a real problem.

    These people are corrupting and indoctrinating the youth.

    I wonder if there is anything the Trump administration can do.

    Man, we have a lot of people that care so much about what a Yale professor does. Doubt most of them could get into Yale, though, so they won't have to deal with it...

    I think if there was a wall around Yale and we didn't let people or ideas out then people would care less about it.

    Whether or not they do midterms will not affect life outside college. Stop pretending this is anything other than the normal BS that ends with how horrible millennials or SJW or whatever people you've chosen to be against today. Be honest.

    Um, guys, I don''t think you 'get' it.

    Strange to say - and it is very strange for me to see - your man won.

    What about the old, let us be magnanimous in victory and all that.....?

    Yes, he did not win the popular vote - Secretary Clinton did.

    And I am uncharitable enough to idly wonder what form protests, or (possibly excessively emotional) responses might have taken had matters been resolved the other way around, namely that Secretary Clinton had won the Electoral College and Mr Trump the popular vote?

    This is because, while it must indeed remain in the realm of speculation, there is no doubt that there would have been a loud, and vocal response from Mr Trumps's supporters had that happened, and accusations of election rigging, and how the numbers of 'real' people whose voices would not now be heard, would echo loudly across airwaves, and online and elsewhere.

    So: You treasure your amendments: These famous ones, we read about them ceaselessly on these threads, (some more than others, granted) Number One, Number Two and so on.

    You will defend them to the death: Thus, what is wrong with allowing those whose political views differ from yours to express their frustration and disappointment?

    Or is the right to free speech - and the respect they should be accorded to say what they say even if you think it perfectly idiotic - just to be confined to those with whom you find yourselves in complete agreement?

    Of course we don't 'get' it. But you and a couple special ones are so enlightened. :rolleyes:

    As for popular v electorial vote...it's happened twice in our lifetime, O Enlightened One, so it's not news to us. It's a non-starter.

    Would this guy be as emotional had Trump won the popular vote and Clinton the Electoral?



    What a child.

    Clinton won by 230,053 votes of millions of votes casted - I don't call that really much of a statement...just saying....:rolleyes:

    My opinion I like the electoral college if the presidency was decided on the popular vote the large states like California, Texas, Florida and New York would always be deciding who becomes president. Smaller states the voters would probably get disenfranchised and stop voting in Presidential elections for they would go why bother voting? It also forces candidates to campaign in States that they probably would not if the election was decided by popular vote.

    The only way I could see the election being decided by popular vote is if the votes coming in weren't link to a particular state so the candidates wouldn't know where the votes were coming from. An we know that won't happen. An Smaller States don't want to give up their electoral votes to begin with.

    Indeed. But firstly, she did garner more votes than Mr Trump did - and, small enough though that margin have been, the fact of it is not in dispute - and secondly, my idle inquiry did not concern the numbers: Rather, it concerns the actual - or potential - reaction: How would the supporters of Mr Trump have reacted if matters had been the other way around? I suspect - going by their conduct at previous gatherings - that it would have been rather vocal.

    No, what I don't get is the lack of magnanimity in the tone some of you are taking.

    I feel a bit surprised that I have to point out to you that you won.

    You won. Get over it. Be nice about it.

    Re the popular vote, I merely point it out because I suspect that this very fact - victory in the popular vote - would have been used as a rallying point for an outpouring of wildly excessive emotional venting had matters been the other way around.

    As for 'enlightened': Well, everything Mr Trump stands tis is antithetical to the values of the Enlightenment.

    Real simple. End student loan and grant programs. Maybe they can pick produce for a living.

    As you should feel odd. Apparently you're new to elections (not limited to the US) and how some people react on both sides. Particularly on a forum where members have posting history. You have viewing alternatives now that you've shared your enlightenment.

    Yeah, this nonsense about her the popular vote mattering is rather humorous. That's roughly her margin of victory in D.C. Does anyone in their right mind think the course do the nation should be decided by the idiots in D.C.?

    If they want to change to an apportionment method, that's fine. One electoral vote for each congressional district that said candidate wins. If the candidate gets 50% + 1 of the popular vote within a State, then that candidate gets both senator electors. If neither gets 50%, then the two senatorial electors are split between the top two. That should make things interesting enough.

    Whether they do midterms doesn't impact outside of college. The delicate fragile minds ideology they push that this is inspired by does.

    Firstly, the popular vote doesn't matter. Second, the tactic you describe in a post election outcome environment has only occurred on the left, so the notion that people on the right would suddenly snap and go into full on snowflake meltdown mode like the left is doing right now is a highly unlikely prospect. It's simply not the M.O. of the right in this country.
