That is a good example of a "Rant in Disguise" question.
In essence looks like a question that is not posted in good faith, and is intended to make some point(or in this case, I'd call it a "zinger" and not a "point")
I usually close these questions as "Unclear what you're asking", because that's what replaced the old "not a real question" close reason, and it a question asked in bad faith is not a real question.
On the flip side, if you think a question is asked in good faith and that the op really does have a poor understanding of government, then it's a perfectly valid question, and you should answer it.
When you answer it, do your best to Correct the actual misunderstanding that the OP has. If you were to assume that the example answer was asked in good faith, then you should explain at a high level how the electoral college doesn't always reflect the same results as the popular vote, and explain how an electoral college system might be considered a democracy.
One of the reasons for a site like this is to improve people's understanding of government.
