News is already minimizing polls showing Clinton & Trump running neck-in-neck within three points. CBS said outright that what matters anyway is not the popular vote but the Electoral College votes. Citizens do not directly elect the president but choose electors to do it for us. When was the election for US electors? Anyone ever remember choosing an elector?
Why they go through the charade of an interminable campaign must be to give an illusion of democracy & whip us into giving a damn which of these two jokers wins.
