Yesterday, I posted a short piece about the Electoral College and it’s apparent disenfranchising of the votes of many. It appears we have a text book case this year with Florida. The totals reported on politico.com as of 7:45 AM EST is 303 electoral votes for President Obama and 206 for Mitt Romney. That is a total of 509. The remaining 29 belong to Florida. Since Mitt Romney was more than 29 below 270, it was all over without Florida. With the electoral process, Florida was a complete non-issue. How would you feel if your vote was utterly irrelevant to the outcome?
Is the Electoral College appropriate anymore?
