Say What?! Electoral college VS popular vote
As we continue to track the results from the New Hampshire primary, and with another Democratic debate on the way this week, we just want to get your thoughts on the voting process.
Let's take a little presidential election quiz and see how you fair. First question: what is the electoral college?
"It deals with the, electing of the President," said Mya Ebeling.
"A conglomerate of people that are nominated by the parties to go and cast our official votes for the president," said Karla Cunningham.
"A representation of a voting block to a particular candidate," said Roger Lindley.
Many of you know your stuff! It's the process between the election of the president by a vote in Congress and the popular vote of the citizens. Next, let's play a game of true or false. A candidate with the most popular votes from the people will become the next president.
"No," said Ebeling.
"False," said Cunningham.
"That's not necessarily true," said Lindley.
All the right answers here! Now here's what you had to say about the entire voting process regarding the electoral college.
"I think it should be a democratic vote," said Ebeling.
"I think now the populous vote should count more...should be, I think the electoral college should just go away," said Cunningham.
"I think the popular vote should count although, I don't know how the practically of that could actually carry any viability," said Lindley.
