Default Re: The Electorate College

ok i know i am not an American but when the presidential elections are on i with the rest of the world watch it, and the Electoral College is something i disagree with. i feel a democratic government is a government elected by the people for the people with the people.

i think the Electoral College prevents this. like in the 2000 Presidential elections, Al Gore, if memory serves me correctly got more popular votes, i.e. more people wanted him as President than they did Bush. but Bush got more Electoral Votes.

in a democracy its the people who should have the final say.
