Agree fully with all posters who realise that the electoral process is merely window dressing. It removes choice while giving the appearance of having
And the electoral college system WTF????
So certain states are more influential in the final tally than others?
Sorry folks but if you think that that is democracy then they have won in this game of illusions.
As an interested outsider I would vote Obama, I think that his first term was sabotaged by the partisan politics (the illusion of choice) that he

So that is my irrelevant non voting non American two cents.
