Thread Name: BS: Election of the US President
Subject: RE: BS: Election of the US President
The Electoral College, as I understand it was intended to provide a sense of balance in Presidential elections. I make no claim to understanding it. But the Electoral vote works both ways. Republicans may be screaming now, but in 2000 Al Gore actually won the popular vote and lost the election due to the Electoral College vote.
