Really? That's all you have to say.

Did you even read the link? Take a moment to put yourself in the framers position.

Tell me exactly what pert of my statement you disagree with, then perhaps I can respond.

pigrider wants to know Dino or Syn?
I think it should be done away with just so the canadates would have to campain in all the states & not target a few just to get the numbers. Also I think more people would vote if they thought their vote actually meant something instead of just going in a pool. The down side is we'd have to wait 2 or 3 days for Florida to finish counting their votes to find out who won.

Personally, if a candidate can't win the popular vote, they don't deserve the win imho.

Also, it kind of bothers me that a candidate can win a few key states and lock up the win, while the opponent could secure many more states and still lose......doesn't seem right.
