There is no serious third-party challenger, so it is going to be either Biden or Trump. There are very few undecideds. This is an election of bases. It just depends on which camp is the more energized. The is no question on that one. Biden may end up the way Clinton did, by being the most voted, and Trump still be 2nd term President. The US doesn´t have a universal voter system, sure it's a one person one vote, and at the end the guy with more representants wins, not the most voted. What you have to understand is that we are not a Democracy. We are a Republic. We are ruled by law and not by majority vote. I’d suggest that you try learning about the Electoral College. It’s ideal for voting in a very large diverse nation (it probably wouldn’t work in a small homogenous country). As in majority rule, every vote counts but in a Republic, the winner must garner a broader appeal and not a concentration of votes. There are over 3100 counties in this country. In general, the one gaining more counties in a state, wins the state. There are exceptions. Each state has a number of electoral electors. The one with more electors, wins. Besides I fear that it will be decided by courts, and thus throwing the "democracy" system to the sewer. No, it won’t throw our version of “democracy” into the sewer, but it will challenge it. It will emerge from the crucible even stronger. The court will usually side with the Electoral College and Trump looks to have the lead there. 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
