Simon is un­aware that Clin­ton won more votes than Trump

Malta Independent - - LETTERS -

On Sunday 13 Novem­ber, Simon Busut­til ap­pealed to Mal­tese and Goz­i­tan vot­ers to do what Amer­i­can vot­ers did when vot­ing for Don­ald Trump.

When say­ing this, Simon Busut­til has con­firmed how po­lit­i­cally naive he is. Don­ald Trump won the elec­tion be­cause he won more mem­bers of the Elec­toral Col­lege than Hil­lary Clin­ton. The Leader of the Opposition failed to in­form his lis­ten­ers that Hil­lary Clin­ton is ex­pected to have won around two mil­lion more votes through­out all the States (Cal­i­for­nia votes are still be­ing counted as I write) than Don­ald Trump. While in our elec­toral sys­tem it is not the num­ber of seats a party wins which mat­ter, but the ma­jor­ity of votes! So if in the USA they had a sim­i­lar sys­tem, which is much more demo­cratic, Hil­lary Clin­ton would have won the Pres­i­dency and not Don­ald Trump!

Dr Busut­til keeps con­firm­ing that he is just try­ing to con­vince those with the low­est IQ since he must have lost all hope of con­vinc­ing se­ri­ous minded and in­tel­li­gent vot­ers.
