By a wide margin, Americans want to elect their president by popular vote – not because such a system would favor Democrats (it would not) but because a popular vote would mean every person’s vote in every state would count the same.
Would it surprise you to learn that a large majority of Americans affirmatively agree that they do not want to see their local hospitals destroyed by heavy rainstorms? I mean, let’s hope not. Fine, the question is silly but the problem isn’t: it’s raining more than it used to.
What is gerrymandering and can it be stopped?
In every election in the United States, the winner of the election is the person who wins the most votes. Every election except one: the choice of the president and the vice president.
