Totally agree with you there, but remember: Trump lost the general election in direct votes.

He only got the Presidency via the Electoral College.

Yes, that's a strange concept that I still find hard to grasp, being British I suppose. We don't operate that sort of 'electoral college' system over here. What people vote for is what they get, (more or less.) :wink:

Well first past the post isn't exactly fair but it's better than the US, it should be proportional representation IMO.

The current systems will always favour those with money/power, not reflect what's fair.

As Gore Vidal so aptly put it, 'free enterprise for the poor, socialism for the rich'.
