US Election

Published on Nov 6, 2020

Normally I don't look over the large sea and check for US Politics, but the last few days have been pretty interesting.

Also, every newspaper is reporting daily and every tv station that has news reports at least every other hour or so. There is no way around knowing that is a tight race this time.

I'm not going to argue which presidential candidate would be the better one, but I can talk about the interesting system they've got over there.

The main question I have is, how can it be that more than half of the country can vote for one person and still the other one can win because of a system where every state as a fixed amount of votes?

How can a system be democratic, where the majority wants one person, but because of it the other one wins?

The next question is, how can there only be two large parties? I know they grew through hundreds of years, but still? Why isn't there are large third or even fourth party for such an important job like POTUS?

I think I'm not the only one thinking that way. From what I've read there seems to be a change in Americans thinking about voting. At least it is the election with the most filled out ballot papers ever, at least that's what I've heard. :)
