I think it should go the way of the musket toters.

who ever has the most stones in their bucket becomes president. Problem solved.

Actually, it needs to be eliminated.

Yes, it should be a simple popular vote, no intelligent person could think otherwise.
11 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 6/4/08 - 9:03:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Vote, period.
11 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 6/7/08 - 4:43:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. I can't tell you how many times I nearly gave up on voting because I know there's no way Texas is going to go Democrat.
11 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 6/26/08 - 1:36:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, our vote doesn't even seem to count anymore.
11 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 7/12/08 - 12:07:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
It's not really the American people voting. It should be the popular vote all the way.
11 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 7/25/08 - 4:43:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't see what's wrong with it.
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 8/9/08 - 3:21:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think the whole idea should be scraped and it should just be the counting of everyone's vote separately.

i second that.

It should just be a popular vote. We would have had Gore in 2000 that way.

That's not why I support it, but it's wrong that the president that wins the popular vote loses the election
