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?
