It's like their voices don't count when it comes to the race for president.
Second choice voting is the only way I see out of this mess, both to break the stranglehold the two-party system has over the neck of this country, and to guarantee equal dispersal of a vote's "value" regardless of where a person lives.
been saying this for years. The electoral college system and the entire nomination process with the primaries and cacauses is an outdated joke.
They should go to a popular vote or get rid of the winner take all format. If your a minority voter in a state that's voted repub or dem for decades, you really have no voice at all.
The primary races are too long and drawn out. Created when candidates would travel by train and it would takes days and weeks for news to get around the country. It just doesn't make sense in today's modern world.
