We (New Zealand) have proportional representation. Which means every vote counts and if you get enough of the popular vote you get a seat in parliament. The upshot is more parties, more options and large parties must work with small parties to get stuff done. It really eliminates the crazies as it means you need to compromise to get your vision across.

Here in NC, the cities vote for Obama and the rednecks will vote for Romney. I've come to the conclusion that the urban poor want Obama because they want the rich to pay more taxes and the rural poor want Romney because they think if the rich stay rich, they`ll get some of their leavings.
