I'm not voting.
Your vote does not count, it's merely a suggestion based on popularity for the Electoral College, who then chooses the president.

Wake up.

Can you cite examples of the Electoral College voting contrary to the popular vote?
 Quoting: Bluebird


It does happen, although not often.


John Quincy Adams who lost by 44,804 votes to Andrew Jackson in 1824
Rutherford B. Hayes who lost by 264,292 votes to Samuel J. Tilden in 1876
Benjamin Harrison who lost by 95,713 votes to Grover Cleveland in 1888
George W. Bush who lost by 543,816 votes to Al Gore in the 2000 election.
