Yes and no.

Simplest explanation is Electoral votes are decided by each states individual popular vote.

Each state has a different amount of electoral votes based on population. Which is also connected to the number of seats each state has in both the house and Senate

More or less. It’s how Virus in Chief got elected

Yep, just as it always has. People who argue against it are imbeciles that need to learn history...

and come to think of it, I cannot think of a single modernized country that elects leader by popular vote; a few of the 3rd world countries in south america and africa possibly...🤔

This is the reason I never voted.

100% yes

Yes, but by its own arcane rules derived approximately from the votes cast.

Basically it's a "winner take all" system. Each state has 2 senators. The number of representatives is decided by the population. Your number of electors is equal to your number of representatives for a state + The 2 senators. California has the most. My state, Oregon has 7... 5 representatives + 2 senators. There are 435 representatives + 100 senators+ 3 electoral votes for Washington DC.. If you win a majority vote for President in Oregon... you will get all 7 electoral votes. You need 1/2 of 538 equals 269 + 1 to become President. After an election electors cast their votes for President by whoever won the majority for their state.
