Popular Vote

as much as im not happy with the results so far, i do beleave that the popular vote should be what elect presidential nomanys, as well as how the general vote should be desided. so im gona try my best to keep an accurate tally of the popular vote. after 3 states ( Iowa, NH, and SC) this is the popular vote.


in first place Mitt Romney with 294,616 votes.
in second Newt Gingrich with 282,727 votes.
third is Ron Paul with 160,877.
fourth Rick Santorum with 155,256.





will try to update after each primary if there is any interest from you guys in following this.

The only problem with popular voting in a president would be the super states would/could elect every president based on concentrated population. They already have the big electoral college votes advantage.

Very interesting numbers Hunt NH. I'm a big fan of the popular vote. I understand Hunting Mans concern but it works both ways. Plus, states elect their representatives and senators so Congress may not be so logjammed as it is now. Be interested to see some studies on this.

not a fan of popular vote either... MOST of the time, that would mean a DEMOCRAT for president.

Tator, I totally agree, the Dems are the pollsters!

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome of the vote.
