In the 2000 presidential election, George W. Bush’s 271 electoral college victory over Al Gore’s 266, prompted renewed calls for reforming the electoral college. Al Gore had won the nationwide popular vote by more than 500,000 votes over Bush, yet he still lost in the electoral college. Several reforms were called during this time period, all different methods that would benefit the country. One of these reforms included a district plan, which would give electoral votes by legislative district rather than at the statewide level. This reform is similar to the current system in Maine and
Donald Trump has a higher following than his presidential race counterpart Hillary Clinton among the white evangelicals, according to a new CBS poll. About 62 percent of the white evangelicals are supporting Trump, while only 17 percent favor Clinton, which gives Trump an edge by a wide margin of 3 to 1 over his competitor among this group. White men were more likely to support Trump (51 percent) than Clinton (31 percent), and white women preferred Clinton (43 percent) over Trump (35 percent). As many as 73 percent of Republicans supported Trump, as against Clinton (6 percent). More Democrats favored Clinton (81 percent) than Trump (6 percent).
t 's said we all have one vote no matter how rich, poor, tall, short, smart, or uninformed, we get one vote and elections are the great equalizer as everybody is reduced to "one vote." (Wrong) When it comes to the US presidential elections, some voters have more influence than others. When we vote, we aren’t voting for the President. We are voting to encourage our state’s Electoral College members to vote a certain way. And if the past and current elections hold, it looks like one candidate will win the electoral vote while another wins the popular vote as we saw in the 2017 election.
The democrats have stayed with this system more so than the republicans because Nixon and Reagan buried their democrat rivals in the general elections and won by landslides so, they decided that when they have a candidate that they know will not stand up well against the rival party, that they have the ability to impact who gets nominated and possibly field a more successful candidate. If I would have been asked this question prior to this election, I probably would have said “Get rid of the superdelgates,” but now I’m not 100% sure. With a candidate like Trump, you see that he has a great voter following, more than anyone thought would ever take him seriously. Imagine if the Democratic Party had a candidate like Trump (some see Bernie Sanders as a “grassroots activist” in the Democratic Party although Bernie is not emotionally and negatively divisive). Trump may take the popular vote but, he may not get the “unpledged" delegates (Republican Party) or enough total delegates to get the nomination and for me, that would be a “pro” for the “super or “unpledged” delegate
Al Gore received more votes than George Bush. – True Based on the election updates, establishing later in two thousand, although it eliminated steps and measures to resolve the discrepancy that Al Gore received Five hundred and fourth thousand > George Bush, however by receiving <votes than Al Gore logically Al Gore should have held the Presidency. Therefore, Al Gore was elected President of the United States. –
One reason the Electoral College should be abolished is that one of the candidates could win the popular vote and still end up losing the election. On November 8th, 2016 Donald Trump was elected president because the Electoral College voted for him. Approximately thirty out of the fifty states’ electoral colleges voted for Donald Trump, he ended with 290 Electoral College votes. He had lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by about one million people because the vote of the citizens in the US has no value. The Electoral College votes are the only ones with value.
In 1984, it was again time to elect a president. Democrat Walter Mondale, former vice president under Jimmy Carter, was running against the current president, Ronald Reagan. Because of their lead in the polls, Reagan and his team decided not to attack Mondale, but to form a campaign based on being able to feel good about America again. Amongst the many commercials Reagan 's team did, "Morning in America" stands out as one of the greatest political ads ever. It created a sense that America was once again strong and Americans could feel secure in the knowledge that they were living in the greatest country in the world.
The system allows the election of a minority president. In this situation the loser of the popular vote wins the electoral vote. According to the "winner take all" method in which the candidate who receives the majority of the votes in the state wins all of its Electors, it is possible for the candidate to become the president even without having the popular vote. This is also the case of the 2016 presidential elections. In this case Donald Trump passed 270 electoral college votes but Hillary Clinton received more popular votes.
The political scene in Texas for the past twenty years has been consistently geared to one side (the right) and I do not see it changing anytime soon. This last presidential election was the most controversial and divided this country has seen in decades and if a change was going to happen, it would have happened this cycle. As the Texas counties started submitting their total vote counts for the presidency, the only counties that went blue were the counties with the major Texas cities in them, i.e. Austin and Dallas. The rest of the state stayed red.
I believe the citizens of Georgia will vote for Donald Trump in the presidential election and for Johnny Isakson in the election for Senate. They will also vote for all incumbents for the 13 districts in Georgia. The research from many studies and polls collectively show that Trump will be the winner of Georgia, and For president, Georgia polls have consistently shown Trump ahead of Hillary, and currently has 63% of voters support. They most recent Georgia voted for a Democratic candidate was the 1992 election and have consistently voted Republican after. Though their elections have been fairly close throughout the years, they’ve also been fairly consistent in voting for more conservative candidates.
The United States worldwide Presidential Election was on November 7, 2000 with the contestants George W. Bush and Al Gore. Both candidates were very popular to the world but it seemed that Al Gore was much more popular in a different way. In the election, Al Gore received 50,998,442 votes while Bush was behind him with 50,449,494 votes. That is about 548,948 less than Gore had. There were many undervotes in majority of the states with this election and more than one hundred million people voted out of each state and made it an extremely close election.
New Hampshire has always been the first state to hold a primary, and passed a law that gives its secretary of state the power to change the date in order to precede any other primary by one week. (Convention and campaigns) Though New Hampshire is surrounded by blue states, it is a swing state, and could vote either way in the upcoming presidential primary and later in the presidential election. (New Hampshire Voting History) In the last ten presidential elections, the people of New Hampshire have voted for the Republican candidate five times, and for the democratic candidate five times. (New Hampshire Voting History) Although, in five of the past six general presidential elections the state has voted for the Democratic candidate. (New Hampshire Voting History) In recent polls from November fifteen, Trump was leading in Republican presidential primary polls, followed by Carson, Rubio, Cruz and Kasich.
I predict that in the Democratic Party I believe that Bernie Sanders will not make and that Hillary Clinton will win in the Democratic Party. In the Republican Party I believe that the next person to drop out is John Kasich. The next person that I think is going to drop out is Ted Cruz. That would leave Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Party and Donald Trump in the Republican Party. In the Republican Party there is currently three people running for President because Marco Rubio has dropped out of the election.
