You are going off numbers that have no validity though.
Why do they have no validity? The point is proven by the results of the popular vote.
If we are looking at it that way though, I would still disagree.
fair enough :)
If you look at it logistically with some socialology areas of a town/city are normally the same class being from the same class, tend to have the same views and will vote for the same parties. the storm hit certain areas of the states....not the whole state.
Guess that is a matter of opinion... Towns and cities have a variety of social make up. NO town votes all the same way.
So what you're trying to say is that republicans were hit worse by the disaster? By more than 600,000 people?
This in a state that hasn't voted a republican into office since Bush in 1988! That was 7 presidential elections ago.
As for higher income, Maryland has the nations highest average income and ALSO hasn't voted republican since 1988. NJ has the 3rd highest average and again hasn't voted a republican in since 1988. Connecticut is 4th which also hasn't voted republican since 1988. 5th highest average income is Mass, which hasn't voted republican into office since 1994.
Sorry but that whole income thing just doesn't hold true. Of the 10 states with the highest average income, only Alaska, NH and Virginia have voted in favor of a republican since 1988. That's 70% voting democrat of the 10 highest income states.
So there is a potential for a storm only hitting richer communites that will tend to be repubs or poorer areas that will tend to be more democrats.
I would agree that some communities are going to be stronger towards one side. But most storms like this don't affect communities. They affect entire REGIONS. Being in Florida, we deal with hurricanes a LOT and they have a WIDE affect on regions. They don't isolate a community.
End the end its all chance and tbh, the only way you would effective way to resolve that problem would to be to extend the voting deadline for those areas.
That I would agree with.
Fact is I don't want my state's votes to be determined by the mass majority b/c the mass majority of ppl these days are idiots and have no mind of their own to make a WISE decision. And if you think thats false then why is Obama still in office?
I agree with this 100%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I might say that they aren't idiots though, but uninformed. BADLY uninformed!
Some ppl may have made a honest decision to vote for him but the majority of ppl acted as if they were voting for Prom King and Queen. The way ppl acted you would of though Obama was a part of the Backstreet boys, just a bunch of ppl groupies that want to be cool since there friends voted for him... I mean come on he was on MTV he must be cool
LOL again we agree here! HAHAHA
But how would it have been any different without the electoral vote? Obama won the popular vote as well. So what would have been different?
Good conversation though!
