Video: Prager U asks ‘Do you understand the electoral college?’

With the popular vote count continuing across the country, Hillary Clinton is narrowly ahead of Donald Trump, at least according to the official results.

But Trump already gained enough of the electoral vote on 8 November to seal the deal.  As America awaits the vote of the Electoral College on 19 December, it’s a good time to pull the oldie but goodie, from May 2015, out of the vault.

Do you understand what the Electoral College is? Or how it works? Or why America uses it to elect its presidents instead of just using a straight popular vote? Author, lawyer and Electoral College expert Tara Ross does, and she explains that to understand the Electoral College is to understand American democracy.
