"Because, if we did nearly every election would be decided by Californians. That isn`t a good idea at all."

Is that any worse than every election being decided by a handful of states? Surely its better for every persons vote to be equal, no matter where you live? Why should the place you live make your vote actually worth something? If its a popular vote, then literally every vote counts, whereas at the moment, most of your population (well, the ones that actually bother to vote!) have little impact. Its no wonder your turnout is so appallingly low.

Your system doesnt make sense. Lets say you have 4 states. Each has a population of 10 million. Each one gets 10 of your college vote thingys. Lets pretend Obama wins 3 states and gets 51% of the votes in each state. Romney wins the other one and gets 99% of the votes. Overall Romney would have far more individual votes, but Obama would get 30 college votes to 10. How is that fair?

"Gee, that would be news to Chris Stevens` mother"

Hahaha. Yes idiot. The president is personally responsible for the life and death of each and every American.

Here is a list of American embassies: www.usembassy.gov

I`m quite certain the president personally calls and checks in on each one every morning to see how their security.

Simpletons like you are the reason this election is embarrassingly close.

Nobody come to Delaware. Well I shouldn`t say nobody. Steve Forbes did back in the day. He even came to my pub and interrupted me during happy hour. I shook his hand and wished him well...seriously...cross my heart and hope to die, stick a needle in my eye.

"HG: Romney has visited many more states than Obama has and has more visits in total. Obama hasn`t even visited half the states, only 23."

1. We aren`t debating Obama VS. Romney. We are debating whether the electoral college encourages candidates to visit the smaller states. So the fact that Obama has visited less than half of states proves my point even further. Did you forget what we were arguing about?

2. Obama is running the country, Romney is campaigning full time. OF COURSE he has had time to be more places.

"Care to say that again?"

I`m not sure what you don`t understand, or rather I guess I do, but I`m not sure how I could word it better.

There are at least 16 states he hasn`t visited even once. Is that better?

Bull5h17, you`re trying to silence the debate on the matter. To YOU it is common sense, when in fact you`ve only managed to establish a CORRELATION at best. The Russian Federation suffers from serious regionalism and they don`t even have an electoral college.

No voting for me... I can`t stand either of them. Well, there is that, and I don`t plan on voting for as long as we continue to use the electoral college as means for electing the president.

"HG: Your link just proved my point. Ignore Obama`s visits and look at the red ones, Romney`s. Romney has been all over the map."

He is trying to be president of the United States, and according to the map he hasn`t visited at least 16 of the states EVEN ONCE in the whole campaign. However he has been to Ohio 32 times.

That seems like a good system to you? Honestly?

"This way candidates pay attention to and visit the smaller states as well."

NO. NO. NO.

That is simply not true.

Look at the campaign visits by state, especially the last 30 days: http://tinyurl.com/cqfksyf

The electoral college does THE EXACT OPPOSITE.

If there are 100,000 undecided voters in Oklahoma than the candidates would be in Oklahoma fighting for those votes in an election by national popular vote. However because we have winner take all states and an electoral college and everyone knows Oklahoma is going republican, nobody visits Oklahoma.

This is NOT a partisan issue, it is a common sense issue. We have a presidential election that is essentially being decided by Ohio. That is a broken system whether you are Republican or Democrat.

"It is a waste of my time to vote. I live in Tennessee. No matter who I vote for, Mitt Romney gets our state."

And thats why I think your voting system is retarded. Most peoples votes dont seem to matter. Race for the president seems to be decided by a handful of states. Why bother having the rest vote?

Why doesn`t America do what just about every other country in the world does and have a popular vote?

So you decided to follow his lead? Didn`t your parents ever say, "If your friend jumped off a bridge would you?". Apparently you thought it was okay to cheat since you thought he did it.

Sorry, cheaters don`t win, and your lashing out at me just proves how guilty you are. If you`re weak enough to attempt to cheat on a silly little poll like this, what else have you been cheating at?

"markust, you still tried to vote twice in this poll which, if you were an honest person, you wouldn`t have even tried. Another typical tactic of democrats, accuse your opponent to deflect blame from yourself. It shows that even you don`t trust the system and feel a need to `correct` it by `testing` it out. Do you distrust Fancy, that he would post a poll that would be easily subverted?"

Are you f*cking kidding me? Patchgrabber said he could vote twice so I was checking how reliable this poll was. And if it let me vote twice I was going to comment on that. Here you are twisting the situation around once again. It really amazes me what a consistently horrible human being you are. You really are the worst person I have ever encountered. How do you live with yourself?

Crakrjak, "And you wonder why we need Voter ID laws. Typical democrat, tries to vote twice."

I was checking what Patchgrabber had stated. I was seeing if he could actually vote twice. It is extremely clear from my response that that is what I was doing. This is a prime example of what an assh*le you are. You twist everyones statements into something they never said then attack that new stance. And when you are proved wrong you just change your stance multiple times. You are the most frustrating and least moral person I have ever encountered. Are you so lonely that the only way people will talk to you is by getting a rise out of them?

patchgrabber: Actually this poll seems to be more secure than our election system. Since anyone can show up and vote without any proof of their identity it would be easy for someone to send in multiple registration forms, with fake names of course, with different addresses and show up to vote at multiple polling places.

OMFG. He was doing it to see if it actually registered a vote twice, which it apparently doesn`t. Your statement implies that your presidential election had voting in this format, and even if it did, ID wouldn`t be required as it only counts the first vote.

How about implementing democracy instead of a system where 51% voters = 100% of the votes.
2013 the US should invade itself and remove the dictator(s) and force itself to let voters decide and not the money behind each candidate.

Stupid system is stupid.

The 15% that choose not to vote bodes well for challenger, in this case, Romney. I think the big key in this race is the almost complete lack of motivation to vote on the side of the liberals. Sorry all you lefty IABers, but unless there is an October surprise, I think Romney is going to win.

We stare at falacies every year and regard them as truths. As a child: Santa brought you presents. As an adult, the popular vote counts. The highest office the popular vote determines is the House of Representatives. If there were a tie, the House would be the ones to break that tie by having two private elections: President and Vice President. Popular vote would have had Gore/Lieberman win, but we all know that did not happen. So please...tell me why this is so important that we vote for a president. I just see it as a pacifier.
