The question is politically biased. Why didn't it read: Who do you think has a better chance of beating John McCain in the presidential election?

I care, But i think its a forgone conclusion that whomever the Dem's run will win, I dont like any of the them, but you either dont vote, or vote for the lessor of two evil's. I cant agree with very many of either of their platforms. You take the party that has the most things you can agree with and vote that way, i guess. For me its Republican If you think people are crying now, just wait until the Dem's repeal the Bush tax cuts and then see how much we pay. Then you will hear alot of squealing

It is still the best voting system in the world. Thank goodness we live in a country where people vote and elect who they think will represent the country the best. President?.. since when did the President actually run the country? Pay close attention to your state elections. The congress and senate make most of our national decisions.

Native, We go through the motions, but the electorial collage actually elects the president, and I dont understand how they determine their vote, but since we dont elect, Please tell us who, is the next President

Craig_gal-You are so right. The president only runs the day to day management of the U.S. It is the Congress and Senate who pass bills, enact laws, and really run this country. The President can make suggestions and propose legislation, but it is the Congress and Senate that push it through. If they won't work with the President, nothing much will get done. It doesn't matter what the President wants to do. That is why all the promises the candidates make are just empty promises. It's a joke. They can promise the moon, but they aren't the ones to deliver. We really need to pay more attention to the Senators and Congressmen we send to Washington. They are the ones that set the course for this country. The President is basically just a figurehead- a goodwill ambassador for the U.S.

Wow I am liking all the votes in this poll. Thank you grannyrett for your comments and reminding people that despite the " gore and bush" election, everyones vote is important.
We decided over 230 years ago that this country will be ran by the people and if we let the media and a few disgruntled people sour our commitment and our Right to vote then we have let ourselves down and our children down. Yes, there have been some very bizarre presidential elections and this year is not going to be an exception but remember who actually runs this country. Its you

Maybe we should all take a look at our constitution, we don't have the right to vote in federal elections. the elctoral collage was set up so states would be represented on the federal level by what their populations voted for. This is a republic not a democracy so we respect what our constitution has given us.

I personally think the electoral college, like the steam locomotive and the telegraph machine, is obsolete. 221 years ago information took days or weeks to be disseminated across the land. Nowadays a breaking news story in DC can be published around the world in a matter of minutes.

Once they get all the kinks and potential corruption worked out of electronic voting machines there will be no need for the electoral college. Whether we decide to amend the constitution or not is another story.
