I just think its a little ironic....
Going back to the election of 2001 - recounts, missing chads, over sea votes not counted, people claiming they were unjustly refused the right to vote
Then this election with all the lawyers and the talk about how we may not find out who our president is for weeks, maybe months.....
And we actually have the nerve to tell other countries they must run a democracy.
We surely set a great example

I believe you're right. The popular vote should win.
One of my biggest problems from the election of 2001 was the claims that people were refused the right to vote... particurarly african american voters. There is no room for discrimination or racism in any shape of form in this century.
Just an idea to throw out..... We should have Secret Service at all polls.

the popular vote would also encourage more people to vote in non swing states. New York, a solid kerry state, will have discouraged Bush voters from voting because they know he will lose so he wont get any electoral votes.
Another way would be what colorado is trying to do and that is to put a proportion on the electoral votes based on how many popular votes a candidate recieves

Exactly... Every vote is supposed to count - but in all actuality thats not that case, votes dont count... if they did Al Gore would be president.
