Who's voting for the president? Not you. We live in a society where your vote doesn't directly count during a presidential election. This is due to an antiquated
system called the electoral college. The electoral college (EC) was founded in 1787.
The founding fathers set up the system so that the president is chosen indirectly. This was done so that "popular passion," wouldn't factor in as much.
Basically they didn't want presidential campaigns to become purely advertisement campaigns. (third party times) But there are a few serious flaws in the electoral college that need to be dealt with. For example, the well known Democratic motto "one man, one vote," (which
means every vote counts) doesn't apply to presidential elections because of the EC.
