    The US election will not even end well as everyone can see how their president is threatening the results that’ll come out on whoever is the winner in the election after the voting 🗳 ended.

    Edit: Trump stand back and stand by as he said to Proud Boys..

    First of all mail-in voting is cheating , if you can stand in line at Home Depot you can go to the polls. Second of all the dipshit which is the writer from Playboy that started that quote said are you going to leave office Win Lose or Draw they didn't add that little part at the end why would he leave if he won or there was a draw?

    No the Electoral College is not argued in every four years is only argue when the Democrats lose. There's only been two elections that they have called Falls since Nixon. Him and Reagan. Reagan won 49 out of 50 states they couldn't say nothing.

    I live in Washington state halfway between Soyattle and Portlandia. You know what I hardly ever see on a car or in someone's yard is a Biden sign.

    Side note the reason most Americans are blinded and the rest of the world don't know what's going on it's because the media and the pedophiles in Hollywood have the Democrats back 100%. Matter of fact you can't work in Hollywood if you even lean to the right a bit.

    Small states vs large states are not the issue. It is metropolitan vs rural/suburban equity. In reference to the Electorial College.

    I'm sorry, but GOD promised "Israel" to the jewish people (In the Bible & Torah) and "Al-Aqsa Mosque" (Islam) is a place in heaven and not in Jerusalem! Jerusalem don't mentioned even once in the book of Islam (The Quran) Jerusalem belongs to the jews and the "third temple" should be build in the "temple mount" in Jerusalem, Israel….

    The only ones that argue to get rid of the Electoral College is the Communist Democrats- they want mail in voting and other voter fraud schemes (like having the dead vote for them because they don't take them off the voter roles) to steal a 'popular' vote of people dead or alive. Hillary was not and is not popular with the majority of the American people. Her 'popular' vote was a fraud. Thank God in heaven that gave our forefathers the idea of the electoral college- why? So smaller states or larger states all have an equal vote voice in choosing the President. If we didn't have it, large populations like New York and California- 2 states out of 50 would choose the President every 4 years. Leaving 48 states out of it completely- see how the Democrats would love to rig it?

    As a started point yes it is very useful however more explanation needed to unpack the electoral system in US 🇺🇸 in terms of the different voting conditions between states, the class of voters, the electoral money, the influence of power centers and media on the electoral process, the electoral college, etc.
