The rest of us just pretended to vote for the highest office.
In a recent presidential campaign, the candidate who lost the popular vote by 544,683 votes was enthroned in the White House by the archaic and antiquated Electoral College.
At the present time, if a candidate for the presidency got just one more vote than the opposing candidate in each of the 11 most populous states, that candidate would not have to get a single vote in the other 39 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. territories to become president.
All registered voters who vote for a presidential candidate should have their votes count.
In all fairness, the Electoral College should be abolished.
