Anonymous asked: I just read your last post and it says we all need to vote. I'm for obama and stuff but does our vote really matter? Even if obama does win the popularity vote what if he doesn't win the other one like what happened with gore and bush? I'm still going to vote but I am worried that even if he does win the popularity but doesn't win the electoral college vote we're still screwed right? D Do you see that happening though?
I think it came down to 500 something votes Between Bush and Gore in Florida, in the grand scheme of things, that is an incredibly small amount of people.
While I don’t like the electoral scheme of “winner take all” for the states that the electoral college uses in most states, the election in 2000 showed that a few votes can very well matter.
