    Absolutely nothing. The election isn't decided by the popular vote!

    It means Biden loses.

    For all you morons who want to get of the EC, I ask why? So you can cheat easier because Democrats can’t win elections fairly?

    Democrats are ******* liars and hypocrites

    It means that Trump remains president.  

    and the call to  abolish the electoral college will pick up some real steam. 

    But Trump still remains president since any new legislation,  (that wouldn't have snowball's chance  in hell of passing with a GOP controlled senate) ----wouldn't change the outcome of the 2020 election, and at BEST,  would only apply to the NEXT election in 2024.   Hypothetically speaking that is.

    It means that Biden will not be elected president.  If neither candidate wins the majority of votes in the Electoral College (at least 270 votes), then the election will be decided by the Congress, with the House of Representatives deciding on the presidency and the Senate deciding the vice-presidency.  Under that scenario, Biden could presumably be chosen by the House and Trump by the Senate, making Joe Biden the president of the United States and Donald Trump his vice-president.

    It means that there are plenty of dumb people drinking the Biden koolaid out there who need to move out of mommie’s basement and go to work for a living.

    It means the electoral college is nonsense. In a democracy the person who gets the most votes should win.
