So I want to vote for Obama but I'm in a state that is a McCain favorite. It's predicted that McCain will win the popular vote without a doubt. So why vote? I mean if the president was elected by the overall popular vote, then I could see why it would be important to vote. But if McCain wins the pop vote as expected, that means that my states electoral votes will go for McCain, and my Obama vote will have no meaning. So why do people even bother voting if they know their candidate is not going to get the states pop vote?
we learned about people like you in my gov. class.....................every vote counts, and it's wrong that you have a freedom to vote and you don't even appreciate it..........just vote...it's once every 4 years, so it's not gonna kill you to take 20 minutes outta your day
then explain to me how my vote counts? my state has i think 5 electoral votes....mccain wins the pop vote and the electors are supposed to vote in favor of the people, but they actually don't have to if they want to go the other way...so those 5 electoral votes go towards mccains overall electoral votes, and those obama votes don't mean anything.
Agreed yet when i researched it, there are not too many other better ideas that have been suggested, and the govornment is scared that one state with outnumbered votes like california could make the election. they don't want a state from having too much power over the executive branch.
I agree the electoral college is outdated and should not be used anymore. Where did you see that McCain is goin to win the popular vote because everything ive seen says hes goin to get destroyed in the popular vote.
i got in a fight with my teacher about this, he thinks we should abolish the electoral college, all you have to see is my link below basically, the people of the U.S. are not educated enough. The founding fathers knew this and set it up because the general public is too stupid
why so serious?
