Its an interesting statistic.
The population of the US is around 322-million people (more or less).
Half of the population (161-million) live in 9 states. Yep, just nine states.
Georgia, Texas, NY, California, Florida, Ohio, Michigan, Penn and Illinois.
The other 41 states? They make up the other half of the nation's population.
If we dumped the Electoral College? Well, those nine states would be the basic line of politicizing....to entice the majority of those residents to side with X-party.
