I think asking all talk about politics to stop on a comment section is too much to ask for.

Frankly, by the normal standards of the internet -- and given the topic of this quiz -- this comment section is pretty civil.

Ok ppl. What can be seen throughout different presidents is the hatred of them. It seems politics are destroying the system because ppl HAVE TO CHOOSE SIDES. Now what does that sound like? CIVIL WAR. Its pretty much a question of keep or abolish slavery all over again. Some presidents were good, but truly great presidents only do whats best for their country. There are many ppl out there, and you ppl can judge what i say if this is happening to you, that ppl either love Trump, hate Trump, or agree with a few things and disagree with a few as well. Heres the thing though. EVERYONES OPINION MATTERS. Without opinion, NO ONE would vote. Without opinion, the CIVILS RIGHTS MOVEMENT would not have happened. Maybe voting is good or maybe its bad, but everyone needs to honor Trump as our prez even if ppl hate him. Remember, its ok to have opinions or, to have proven facts against him. If you truly want him out, you can certainly try. But ppl need to stop fighting bc others cant even vote at all

Ok yes I could have, that's true. But, you see, many people don't realize the brutality of the United States. They actually bombed a mosque in Iran when they weren't doing anything. The United States is a brutal country. Respect that Trump is president, even if that's not what you prefer because hey, unless he gets impeached or killed, he will be our prez for at least 4 years. Killing innocent people is a crime, right?

I think "brutal" is the wrong word to use when describing the actions of the USA. For a long time, the USA has been at or near the forefront of freedom. I think there's a difference between laws and morality and I think a country can do things that might be illegal or wrong for an individual to do. Keep in mind, the USA helped turn the tide for Europe in two world wars. The Soviet Union played a big role in WW2, obviously. The wars post-WW2 have been mainly about trying to spread freedom and opposing those who would spread communism, which I and many other people believe does not help more people than capitalism and democracy. In recent years, the USA has been opposed increasingly to Muslim extremism. When you have a war, declared or not, innocent people get killed. The USA goes to great lengths to minimize deaths to innocents. To say that Iran has done nothing to the USA is a bit naïve. Iran has been exporting hatred and terrorism for almost 40 years.

It's already happening. Trump is saving Western civilization. The left is trying to completely degrade and erode Western culture and civilization. The left is injecting hormones into young children to change their gender, importing hundreds of thousands of terrorists into Western countries, crippling working-class people Westerners to provide monetary support for all the 3rd-world people they're importing, destroying the nuclear family, and censoring speech on the internet and in academia. Trump is truly the only bastion of hope to save humanity. If he manages to reverse the cultural degradation that the left is pushing and the importation of 3rd world people who hate America, he will without a doubt go down as one of the greatest leaders ever to walk the face of the earth.

I'm not American, so I didn't really know how the Electoral College Vote system worked, looking into it I'm amazed that the self-proclaimed greatest democracy in the world has such a skewed voting system. Someone in Wyoming's vote is worth more than 3 times that of someone in California! What happened to that (American?) quote: 'One Man, One Vote'? Then there's apportioning of the College Votes, some states cast all of their college votes to the local poll winner, some allocate (roughly proportional), some don't even have to take notice of the local poll! There's only 1 person to vote into office - it's a First Past The Post race so why isn't the most basic voting system used? - everyone gets 1 (equal) vote, the winner is the candidate with the most votes.

How could a democracy be self-proclaimed anything? Democracies don't generally make proclamations, do they?

Anyway, the simple answer to your question is that the electoral college is antiquated and retarded (made some sense at the time, not anymore) but politics makes it difficult to abolish.

When designing our government, the Founders were trying to make sure we did not end up like Athens, which was what they meant by the word "democracy." The example of Athens showed that people could be susceptible to a demagogue and that simple majority rule could, at worst, devolve into mob justice, which is what is meant by "tyranny of the majority." The idea was to make sure that being outside the majority didn't make you completely powerless. They tried to find a balance point, and their method has proven imperfect, with a couple hundred years of hindsight.

I'd say a big part of the problem is the Apportionment Act of 1911, which is the reason the number of Representatives is capped at 435. Before that, there was no cap to the number of representatives there could be, so things were a bit more proportional (though still because of every state getting a minimum of 1 representative and having at least 3 electoral votes, some areas might be overrepresented). I do think there is merit in the idea of trying to make sure all areas have a voice, and that majority rule is overly simplistic, but there still must be a better way than what we currently have.

kenpo: the idea that the EC could protect us from the mob electing a demagogue to be president just went straight out the window with the last election. I agree, if they were operating as intended by the founders, they would have put a stop to this and voted against Trump, whether he won the popular vote in their states or not. But out of 435 electors I think there were only 5 that had any spine and did what they were supposed to do.

Indeed. The problem is that any system can be abused if you give people time to figure out the loopholes. That's why the amendment process exists. Sadly, amending the Constitution has turned out to be really difficult, and we kind of slept on the job and waited until things were already too screwed up to start realizing just how bad things are. Now we're stuck with unaccountable lawmakers in heavily gerrymandered districts, who take in so much money from special interests and corporations that they can basically buy their way into office.

Well your problem is you think that we are a democracy. We are to an extent, but to protect the power of the states, we have the electoral college. We also used to have the state representatives vote for senators instead of the people, but those who wanted to diminish state's power changed it with an amendment to the Constitution.

Aug 15, 2017
"to protect the power of the state" - looking at the inequities of the electoral college allocation I guess this comment means 'to protect the (greater) power of (some) states' Besides, the President is president of all of the states. I guess US people vote in their State representatives? Then those state representatives should act in accordance with the people's wishes - so there shouldn't be a problem with the people voting directly for the senators. The only problem would be if the state representatives wanted to vote for senators contrary to the people's wishes (which is what occurs in the electoral college system)

Nope. True democracy is when people vote on things directly, like was done in ancient Athens. The closest we come to that is when there are referendums for citizens to vote on. A republic is government by representative (small R, as opposed to Representative meaning a member of the House). We are a democratic republic in that we elect those representatives, but we are explicitly NOT a democracy. They aren't the same thing, and if your high school political science teacher told you they were, then your school should get someone who actually has a degree in the subject to teach the class next time.

Of course, the math can't be perfect, but with popular vote determining the winner, the Wyomings and North Dakotas would have no voice. Mrs. Clinton's didn't listen to her husband who wanted to campaign for her in the rust belt. He was voted down and joined her in places like California where she raised lots of money and wasted lots of time. Trumpster Fire could have won perhaps a million more popular votes by campaigning in California, but would still never have won the state's electoral votes.

Because the framers of the Constitution knew that a majority can be just as tyrannical as a dictator. (see: mob rule) Whether or not it was designed to, the Electoral College system ensures that a candidate must have broad geographical support that makes it extremely difficult for narrow coalitions of states to seize control of all levers of power. In elections where the loser receives more votes than the electoral college winner(Trump/Clinton, Bush/Gore, etc), this argument to do away with the whole system always gets pulled out. Whether or not you agreed with the outcome of the election, the Electoral College system worked.

Um no.

Though in 2000 I was saying the same thing about Bush as Trump supporters are saying about Trump ("give him a chance! He's probably not as stupid as everyone says!" etc), over the course of his two terms I came to see Bush as not very bright, pretty incompetent, and not an effective president at all, in addition to disagreeing with most of his politics. Stood up next to what we have now, I would take him in a heartbeat. He might not be the smartest guy, the most effective speaker, or the greatest president.. but next to Trump Bush is Stephen Hawking, William Shakespeare, and Abraham Lincoln rolled into one.

Popular opinion seems to have softened on Dubya as he gets further and further in the rearview mirror, but he was a godawful President. Came into office with a budget surplus and pissed it away, and left us with two expensive wars (one of which was initiated for dubious reasons at best), the economy in the toilet, and the worst recession since World War 2. Oh, and $4 per gallon gas prices before the economic collapse, let's not forget that. Trump may indeed be worse in the long run, but he has yet to cause the kind of damage that Bush did.

2018 - Trump is still president. I would also like to remind everyone that there were 2 presidents that were impeached in history....guess what, it wasn't Nixon but beloved Bill Clinton. To be impeached does not mean to leave office, just means charges were brought against you, the impeached president would have to be convicted by a vote within Congress in order to be forced from office. Oh, the other president was Andrew Johnson. Both were acquitted by the Senate

That's... not how it works. Even if Trump were impeached, it would be Pence next. Even if the election results were found to be illegitimate by the courts or something (which would be unprecedented in U.S. history), there would be a new election. Hillary is not going to be President unless she runs again and wins. And considering all the negative baggage she carries, that's not likely to happen.

If you typed Harison with just one R, that would get you William but not Benjamin, as it's not included as an acceptable type-in on Benjamin. If you typed it Harrison with two R's, it should have filled in both. Maybe you only got one R in there by accident?

If they're typing first and last names instead of just last, then they could conceivably get only one if they never filled in the other answer. Maybe they forgot about the other one, or got interrupted before they finished the quiz (happens to me all the time).

And today I found out (thanks to someone else mentioning it above) that Harison with one R is an alternate type-in for William, but not for Benjamin. So if you spell it or type it wrong, you might get one Harrison but not the other.

Here's a relevant quote: 'People happy with the results argue the system is working fine -- of course they do. Their team won. But government isn't a sport where a singular "winner" must be determined. It's a system to make rules that everyone follows and so, we need a system where everyone can agree the process is fair even if the results don't go in their favour. If you support a system that disenfranchises people you don't like and turbo-franchises people you do - then it doesn't look like you support representative democracy, it looks like you support a kind of dictatorship lite.' That's CGP Grey. If you're upset with how the election turned out, *tough luck*. There's a set of rules for how an election works and, no matter how stupid the rules are, Trump used them to garner a majority of electoral college. Logically, he is the president. He isn't a good president? Well, neither were any of the others, according to (about) half of all people. At least in most cases. Deal with it.

For all of you guys ranting on about the electoral college and how the election should be decided on the popular vote, there's a reason we have the electoral college. This reason is so other states with lower populations (ex: Wyoming, the Dakotas, Montana) can have a say in the voting. Our government is a republic, so everyone has a say. If the elections were decided on the popular vote, the election would be decided only in the states with a large population such as California, New York, Texas, and Florida. So that would basically ruin the point of our government and start a tyranny.
+2

Mar 1, 2018
Every ONE has a say? That doesn't make any sense when the ONEs from Wyoming have 3.6x the voting power as the ONEs from California. We've moved past the idea that the United States is a collection of states with competing interests. We're all one country. The only reason Republicans want to disenfranchise people so much or reduce their voting power is because they know that they can't possibly win if the will of the people was accurately represented. They NEED things like gerrymandering, illegal voter purging and voter registration restrictions, and the electoral college to hold on to power. If you're worried about tyranny look to those who represent a minority and are imposing their will on the majority, not the majority who have no power.

I majored in this in college. It is you who needs better sources. For better or worse, the Founders were highly skeptical of simple majority rule because many of them were classicists and did not want us to end up as another Athens, where one demagogue could sway the masses and create a tyrannical majority of mob rule. I'm not saying they would have been happy with the results the Electoral College has given us, but it was their belief that by having specially chosen electors, they could insulate the government somewhat from a fickle, easily swayed populace. Problem is they underestimated how well the parties would learn to game the system.
