"Dissent is the highest form of patriotism"

When Your Popular vote majority doesnt translate to electoral votes

They are calling the election for President Obama it seems but what I notice most alarming with the figures Huffington Post has up. O:284 – R:203 Electoral Votes but the Popular vote our actual votes is currently
Barack Obama Obama 44,748,828 49.2%
Mitt Romney Romney 44,951,212 49.4%

Google Politics shows similar results currently
US General Election November 6, 2012

Barack Obama
49.2%
POPULAR VOTE: 45,011,927
EV: 274

Mitt Romney
49.4%
POPULAR VOTE: 45,233,871
EV: 200

Our votes as citizens don’t seem to match the results from our electoral college.
