Is the Electoral College Still Relevant?

The dust has settled and the new President of the United States will be Republican candidate, Donald Trump.

This result left many Americans, as well as people across the world, dumbfounded. Even some Trump supporters did not believe their candidate could really win the election.

To add to the controversy of what has become the most polarizing election in recent memory, is how Trump won the electoral votes but not the popular vote.
