 A lot of my liberal friends are bemoaning the fact that Trump won the EC but lost the EC and contend (or imply) that HRC would be president if it weren't for the EC.

This is the same logic that implies if a field goal kicker hadn't missed his kick in the first quarter that your team would've won and instead of losing by 2 points. The false assumption is that the game would have played out the exact same way after the fact.

If the EC didn't exist, then the candidates would have run a completely different campaign. For instance, none of the candidates campaigned in NY, CA, OK, etc.

If it were a straight popular vote play, Trump would've campaigned in CA and NY and HRC would have sought out votes in OK.
