Popular Vote Versus Electoral College — More Chaos in the Making

So, if Trump does win (!), here is one stronger likelihood, that there is a split between the popular vote result and the electoral college result.  That is because of the reported massive increase in Latino citizenship and registration, in large part in states that will remain democratic, e.g. California.

That was bad enough in 2000, but image the lack of legitimacy, and potential for god knows what in that situation, although if I am right that check-and-balance institutions are already adjusting to be ready for four years of containment (less if there is an impeachment), the popular vote imbalance would surely embolden them.

Get ready for the ride.
