because more people voted for candidate A
ALL the ELECTORAL votes go to candidate A
the 499 people that voted for candidate B votes don't count in a Presidential vote count
they do for Governors, mayors, propositions, etc

our voting system sucks when it comes to Presidential elections

sorry for the rant, but that is the way i feel
I feel exactly the same way! Electoral vote is BS should be done by popular vote only like local elections are done.
