Al Cardenas, head of the American Conservative Union, has said that Republican turmoil might lead to a brokered convention in which Jeb Bush, former Florida governor, would emerge as a “possible alternative” party nominee.

the voting system should be overhauled.
each state should get 1 vote towards the presidential nomination.
the winner of each state gets one vote. so in the end it would take a 26 state vote to win the presidency.
much simpler and much fairer. that way americans don't have a repeat of 2000 where one state held so much power.edit on 13-2-2012 by randomname because: (no reason given)

I stopped watching after a couple minutes do to extreme stupidity by the Youtube author. You can easily predict the results on an election based on a sample size of 2,300. This is common sense. All the major polling companies regularly make statements about 300 million Americans based on sample sizes of rarely over 3,000 people. This is how statistics works.
There is no hoax, just people making stupid assumptions about polling that are false. The margin of error isn't based on the available maximum sample size. Everyone in statistics knows that. Just because you can get more samples doesn't mean you need to get more samples. The video author of the OP is simply stupid.
There is no hoax.
