Re: American democracy

@Dr Syntax.

It was deliberate...

The EC system is particularly broken because of the way the different colleges decide to handle their votes. Surely a proportional split would make much more sense than each section of the country rounding their votes up to provide 100% support, when a candidate likely only received 60%.

I'm not suggesting that anywhere else has a perfect system - but this peculiar artefact of the US system is particularly screwy.
