This week's poll, last week's results

YOU JUST HEARD NICK DESCRIBE OUR SYSTEM OF ELECTING THE PRESIDENT – THROUGH THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, RATHER THAN BY POPULAR VOTE. AS HE SAID, THE POPULAR VOTE IS MADE UP OF THE VOTES OF INDIVIDUAL CITIZENS. NOW WE HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU: SHOULD WE GET RID OF THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE AND ELECT PRESIDENTS BY POPULAR VOTE? YOU CAN EITHER VOTE YES – WE SHOULD LET THE VOTERS ELECT THE PRESIDENT DIRECTLY, OR NO, WE SHOULD KEEP THE SYSTEM WE HAVE, DESIGNED BY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS…

AND, FOR THE RECORD, ‘OUR’ POLL IS ALWAYS TALLIED AS A POPULAR VOTE! LET’S ALSO LOOK AT OUR POLL FROM LAST WEEK – WITH MORE THAN 700 TOTAL VOTES CAST, A WHOPPING 79% PERCENT OF YOU THOUGHT THAT 3RD PARTY CANDIDATES SHOULD BE INCLUDED ON BALLOTS.

SO, AS PROMISED, WE WILL BE INCLUDING LIBERTARIAN CANDIDATE GARY JOHNSON AND GREEN PARTY CANDIDATE JILL STEIN ON OUR NEWDEPTH ELECTION BALLOT NEXT WEEK. UNFORTUNATELY, WE COULDN’T INCLUDE ALL 1,964 PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES!
