  • Should the electoral college be done away with?

    Best answer: It never should have been created in the first place. No system is perfect, but at least the people would be heard. For those who defend it, I would like to point out that eliminating the electoral college would not effect the checks and balances in the government.

  • Do you think the Democrats can take back the House and Senate next year??????

    I mean it always happens during a presidents term to have their party get kicked out from the house, senate or both, it happened under Bill Clinton, Bush jr, and Obama.

  • Why did more voters cast a ballot for Hillary than for Trump?

    Best answer: Trump's a moron. Americans voted for Hillary because, for all her short comings, she was still the better candidate.

  • Was President Trump the first president in history to win both the popular vote and the electoral college?

    Best answer: Trump not only did not win the popular vote, but he follows three elections in which the winning candidate (Bush in 2004 and Obama in 2008 and 2012) got a majority of the popular vote. (In close elections, the candidate with the most votes often only gets a plurality of the vote -- e.g., 1960, 1968, 1992, and... show more
    Best answer: Trump not only did not win the popular vote, but he follows three elections in which the winning candidate (Bush in 2004 and Obama in 2008 and 2012) got a majority of the popular vote. (In close elections, the candidate with the most votes often only gets a plurality of the vote -- e.g., 1960, 1968, 1992, and 1996.) But in nine of the last fifteen elections, the winning candidate got a majority of the popular vote and won the electoral votes, four times the winning candidate got a plurality of the popular vote, and twice (2000 and Trump) the winning candidate actually got fewer popular votes than his opponent.

  • Now Democrats want to sue to force proportional allocation of presidential electors, based on the popular vote?

    Didn't they notice that the Constitution leaves the method of selecting electors up to the legislatures of each state? There was much debate about how the president should be elected.

    Didn't they notice that the Constitution leaves the method of selecting electors up to the legislatures of each state? There was much debate about how the president should be elected. But whether the president was to be selected by Congress or the Electoral College, it was always clear that the selection would be by the STATES, based on the number of senators and representatives of each state. The Constitution allowed each STATE to determine how to select its electors. To change that to an allocation based on popular vote is tantamount to gutting one of the fundamental 'states rights' established by the Founding Fathers.

  • Left/Right debating aside, what is the purpose for electoral college?

    Best answer: The reason the system is used is because it spreads the vote out across the whole country so that small states have their fair share in deciding who would be President.

    Best answer: The reason the system is used is because it spreads the vote out across the whole country so that small states have their fair share in deciding who would be President. I don't remember the specific numbers but California had something like a 65% voters who voted for Hillary. That was something in the neighborhood of 9 million votes. California is a Very Liberal State and let's say next election 85% vote for the Liberal candidate then that means who ever Californians want, they get and screw the 40+ other States all across the country who voted for the opponent. There's also the controversial fact that there were illegal aliens allowed to vote but who knows how many?.

  • How do you feel about trump winning the president election? In my opinion the electoral vote is ****** and stupid.?

    Best answer: Ok, look at the electoral votes this way-- Each state is divided into counties. There is a total of 3141 counties in the USA. 57 voted for Hillary. 3084 voted for Trump. Only major cities voted for Hillary but they have millions living in them. So without electoral votes the whole country would be controlled by... show more
    Best answer: Ok, look at the electoral votes this way-- Each state is divided into counties. There is a total of 3141 counties in the USA. 57 voted for Hillary. 3084 voted for Trump. Only major cities voted for Hillary but they have millions living in them. So without electoral votes the whole country would be controlled by only major cites and no one outside a big city would ever vote or have any say in anything. THAT is why the founding fathers created the electoral votes so NYC, LA and San Francisco couldn't control what everyone else has to live with.

  • What potential Presidential Candidate for 2020 seems like a unifier that is Someone who can reach across the isle?

    Best answer: None. The aisle is fast becoming a chasm. Thirty years ago, you had a significant number of moderate Republicans and moderate Democrats.

    Best answer: None. The aisle is fast becoming a chasm. Thirty years ago, you had a significant number of moderate Republicans and moderate Democrats. At that time, on any issue in which the two parties disagreed, the average Representative or Senator voted with his party 75-80% of the time. Today that number is close to 90%.

    When one quarter of the representatives of each party are up in the air (50 Republicans and 50 Democrats in the House, 12 Republicans and 12 Democrats in the Senate), there is a decent chance for the minority party to win votes on amendments to legislation by simply being reasonable. On the other hand, if the majority party is reasonable, they can get the 60 votes necessary to force a vote in the Senate. When you only have twenty members of your party up for grabs in the House and five in the Senate, the majority no longer needs to be reasonable on the final votes on the merits. On the other hand, there are not enough loose votes in the Senate to get past a filibuster if the minority party decides to dig in its heels.

    The reason that you have the chasm is that politicians have learned that the only way to win their primary is to take extreme positions and compromise has become a dirty word. The result is that we are acting more like a parliamentary system without the rules in place that permit parliamentary systems to function.

  • Trump will win 400 Electoral Votes in 2020--FACT!?

    Best answer: Delusional Fantasy. For Trump to get 400, that means the Democrat would only get 138. Starting from the most Democratic jurisdiction, you have D.C. (3 electoral votes), Hawaii (4 electoral votes), California (55 electoral votes), Maryland (10 electoral votes), Massachusetts (11 electoral votes), New York (29... show more
    Best answer: Delusional Fantasy. For Trump to get 400, that means the Democrat would only get 138. Starting from the most Democratic jurisdiction, you have D.C. (3 electoral votes), Hawaii (4 electoral votes), California (55 electoral votes), Maryland (10 electoral votes), Massachusetts (11 electoral votes), New York (29 electoral votes), Vermont (3 electoral votes), and Illinois (20 electoral votes), that gets you to 135. The next state in line is New Jersey with 14 electoral votes. Clinton won New Jersey by about 14%. (There are some other states where both candidates did worse than New Jersey that Clinton won by 14% or more including Rhode Island and Washington.)

    To get to that type of electoral margin, Trump would need to get around 54-55% of the total vote. The last Republican to get over 54% of the vote was Ronald Reagan back in 2004. Before that you have to go back to Richard Nixon in 1972 and Dwight Eisenhower in 1956.

    I am just not seeing any reason to believe that Trump will get to 50% of the popular vote in 2020 much less the type of margin that would give him 400 electoral votes.

  • Do independents get a proportional number of seats in the united stated legislature?

    That is, is it the same as their presidential elections where the candidate would lose if they did not get a majority? My understanding is that even if 25 percent of the votes went toward independent party candidates, that does not mean they would get 25 percent of the seats.
