When a president is elected by the electoral college and didn't win the popular vote do you feel like your vote matters?
Popular vote isn't fair to the lesser populated states
You have literally 4-5 states that could decide for the entire country
I believe the electoral college works.
It's also funny that more Rep voted 'pitiful' but they were so happy to see W go to the White House.
If voting really changed anything they'd outlaw it!---
Can't remember who said it.
You elect your representatives, they vote for president.
Your vote counts, just be smart when you vote for who represents you.
Statistically, and even practically, it doesn't seem that it does
Yeah, how is the college any more fair?
But your vote really doesn't matter. If you think it does, I would call that delusional.
Actually it was Emma Goldman and she said "if voting changed anything they'd make it illegal"
It's not just national - and sometimes those local and regional races are more important
I'll be honest, I haven't studied the electoral college enough to make an informed statement.
And the electoral college is. Mhmm.
My vote counts for President, for Senator, for Representative, for Governor, for State Congress, for mayor and even for dog catcher in some instances.
Do you really think Gore would have been a good president? Really?
As good as Bush was. As good as any recent president. If you think we've had a "good" president in the past 30 years, I scoff.
In my opinion, the Electoral College gives far too much power to larger states.
The popular vote doesn't mean anything, nor should it. The electoral college is already too heavily influenced by population.
Equal representation...12 amendment.
Hmm so we love and cite the constitution as reference to arguments that fit our agenda, then disregard it completely when we oppose an issue...hypocritical?
Who are you talking to
Statistically it really doesn't
Anyone who consistently speaks about the constitution as it should never be changed, then voted "pitiful" on this question
