      Don’t know about winning, per se, but I wondered the same.

      As well as whether the CON designation would confuse people into believing those candidates had served time with Mark Smith…

      What does the JoCo ballot look like – do they forgo the abbreviations?

    PPL. Your votes do not count as the Electoral votes are the only thing that matter when selecting the President. Popular votes are for entertainment purposes only. Excuse to have our tax money go to use in the Election. To make it seem like you’re actually worth something to this country. How many times have you guys seen public votes have a higher vote count for one candidate and the other wins due to having more Electoral votes?????
    Get rid of the Electoral system and only go on the people’s choice or why vote?

    Mitt –

    Thanks for dropping by, I’m sure you’re super busy today…

    As for the Electoral College, there are a number of folks who feel the same way. However, I’m not one of them.

    I tend to believe the Electoral College prevents things like everyone’s votes in California, Florida, Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Illinois and Michigan overriding the rest of America’s (might have to add Georgia and North Carolina to the mix to make up for Florida, which probably wouldn’t vote with NY on a bet.).
