Swing States & the Electoral College

A US Presidential candidate could win the majority of the popular vote, and yet not win the Presidency.

Is it true a candidate could also win in 39 out of 50 States, and yet not win the Presidency?

A candidate could lose the popular vote, and win in only eleven out of 50 States, and yet win the Presidency?

Because of the Electoral College.

Whatever the minimum number of States is, it's far fewer than half.

Which is why the candidates campaign so hard in certain swing States.
