Up to the majority

Once again we have a president-elect pushing his idea that he received a mandate. Trump did not win the popular vote. He was elected by an arcane, insane Electoral College from the 18th century. He lost the popular vote by more than 2 million votes, and these majority of voters still believe in climate change, equal pay for women, hikes in minimum wage, and they want among other liberal things, such as a single-payer universal health care system.

The past eight years of obstruction by the Republicans proved that government does not work and they now have to somehow prove it does. It’s up to the majority of voters to remind them of what’s important.
