• 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

    It was my first time voting last year, and I honestly hadn't ever heard of "electoral college." I had gone under the assumption that the candidate that garners the most votes wins. (I also discovered that it actually was not the first time a candidate gained more votes but lost anyway--in 2000, Bush... show more
    It was my first time voting last year, and I honestly hadn't ever heard of "electoral college." I had gone under the assumption that the candidate that garners the most votes wins. (I also discovered that it actually was not the first time a candidate gained more votes but lost anyway--in 2000, Bush won even though his opponent had more votes) It brings me to the question of a) what is the purpose for electoral college, and b) why vote if someone else is going to make the final decision for you anyway? (And PLEASE don't start with the "Trump won, get over it" babbling!!! I'm just trying to understand what the system is and why it is there!)

  • Do you think Trump will get re-elected for a 2nd term?

    If you didn t vote Trump, obviously that didn t make a difference in his election, he still won. But this is more of a question for the people who voted for him. Based on his performance today and everything he s done in White House thus far, if the elections were tomorrow, would you vote for Trump again?

  • How did deep red Virginia turn to a blue Democratic state?

    Best answer: Georgia and South Carolina are close on the heels of Virginia in going Democratic Party. The GOP remains in control only because of extreme Gerrymandering. If the Supreme Court outlaws that, you will see a lot of Republicans losing seats in Congress.

  • Atheists: why do liberals in america tolerate the electoral college system?

    Best answer: It's predicted that within a few decades almost all Americans will live in the same 17 states. At this point the Electoral College will clearly need to be retooled. But to totally disenfranchise entire regions of the country isn't a good thing either (and is part of what lead to the US Civil War). So... show more

But to totally disenfranchise entire regions of the country isn't a good thing either (and is part of what lead to the US Civil War). So greater minds than mine will have to find an equitable solution.
