How The Electoral College Works, From Donna Brazile (WATCH)

So, when Donna Brazile, Vice-Chair of the Democratic National Committee, joined me on Mondays with Marlo, I had her explain exactly how the process works. Not only did she explain to me how the number of electors each state is given is completely dependent on the population of the state, but she even told me how and why our vote matters in the electoral process.
