Electoral College madness

How can Clinton's narrow losses in three states override a national victory?

The presidency is the only office in America you can compete for that doesn't determine its winner by a popular vote. Understanding that, Hillary Clinton lost Wisconsin by 22,000 votes, Michigan by 10,000 votes and Pennsylvania by 68,000 votes. Those combined 100,000 votes, located in those three states, cost Hillary Clinton 46 electoral votes and the election. So, she won nationally by more than 2 million votes but lost by 100,000 in three states and lost the election. Yup, the Electoral College needs to be eliminated.
