They simply use polling numbers to determine who is most likely to defeat the other opponent. It has nothing to do with candidate popularity or which candidate will actually be the best choice.

Also, when we do vote for a president, we are not actually voting for that president. We are voting for the representative in the electoral college to vote on our behalf. There is nothing that forces that representative to vote for the candidate that he was elected to vote for. Hence the reason why Al Gore lost to GW even though Al had the popular vote.

In conclusion, we do not vote for the presidential candidate, the GOP or the DNC will inevitably choose who they want despite popular opinion and the electoral collage will inevitably vote for who the candidate they want despite popular opinion. So your vote really doesn't count...done venting. Just get out there and vote.

Vastly over-simplified.
You seem to have forgotten that there are party primaries, and some states require that the electors vote as the people's vote in the primary decided.

When one votes for the President, one votes on how his state should vote. That is still a representative democracy.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Isn't it normal? Every female friend of my sister is surprised that I can cook. Even more surprising to them is that I cook well.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.
