    Regarding your poll asking if the presidential election should be decided by popular or electoral votes, your question is misleading in that it leaves out the very important fact that the electoral vote is outlined in the U.S. constitution. The only way the popular vote would be allowed is to disregard or attempt to change the Constitution of the United States. Not an easy task and it has been debated for many years. There is a reason the electoral vote was instituted; if the popular vote were in force fiscally irresponsible, bankrupt welfare states such as CA, NY and IL would control the election for all other states that are more financially responsible. Anyone who does not understand the purpose and rational for the electoral college should go back to the US history books and begin teaching children the foundations the United States were built on.
