It's Election Day! Hooray hooray hooray.
I hope that this year, the same candidate who wins the popular vote also wins the election. People have been running numbers through the electoral college, and things are looking weird. It's probable that one candidate will get more votes overall and win more states overall, yet still lose the election.
Of course, for a long time, it's been possible to become President, just by winning 11 states. But that's a technicality, which hasn't ever really been a serious possibility. This year, however...a discrepancy between how people vote and who gets elected seems entirely possible. I just hope that doesn't happen.
Thought experiment: What would happen, if one candidate became President while losing the popular vote? How would the country react?
