Legitimacy

The Left has been using the word illegitimate a lot lately.

Once again, I find that they don't understand The Constitution.

In the Electoral College the states can assign their electors how ever the state government decides.

By popular vote, by a bill in the state legislature, by lottery, by gubernatorial decree...  Any of these is legal.

Whomever gets a majority of those electoral votes is President.  Legitimately.  Even if it's by one elector in a hotly contested race.

The confirmation of judges and justices is the same.  If a majority of The Senate votes to confirm, then they're legitimate.  Even if it's by one vote over a deeply contentious and controversial nominee.
