Trump Triumphed, Cubbies Won, and That's That

I found this comment on a Facebook page. Dude makes a good point:
If Hillary did win the popular vote, what does that tell us? 
If the election rules were based on popular vote, would Trump have run the same campaign? Would he have spent more time in California and New York, you know the two places that were going to go Democrat in the electoral college? 
If he had spent more time in California or New York; would he have garnered more votes for him? 
The argument regarding the popular vote is ludicrous and without merit. 
If the popular vote is considered relevant, when not part of the rules at the start of the process; then it will necessarily follow that the Cubs did not win the series - yet. At the time the series was called, Chicago had scored 27 runs and Cleveland had also scored 27 runs. 
The series is not yet complete. 
Or let's change the rules and go back to the 1962 World Series. New York won 4 games, by scoring a total of 17 runs. But San Francisco scored a total of 23 runs over the series. So obviously, by the current argument of total votes; San Francisco had more total runs and therefore they actually won the 1962 World Series. 
You don't get to change the winner by changing the rules after the contest is complete.
