    I get that I heard you can write names on ballots so if i were american I'd write down bernie for sure but mean


    don't those 1million-odd people voting for extra parties see how they ruined everything?

    I think its more so...hating hillary...spiting her not voting for her knowing she'd need the votes..

    if trump wins it says more of how people feel about hillary than supporting him, shame.

    If they hated Hillary specifically so much they'd vote for her direct rival - Trump. If they hated Donald specifically so much they'd vote for his direct rival - Clinton. If they hated both they vote neither.

    I don't think the people who voted third party cared that much who won given that it was basically impossible their candidate would win.

    lol why is michigan doing this
    michigan has detroit that car place
    which apparently it now looks like hogwarts when voldemort came
    so they probably think trump being a "businessman" will save them and are tired of the clinton's empty promises :\

    ..exactly my point

    why would they vote for someone futile/not gonna win?

    Because they didn't care. But they cared enough to skewer the polls.

    They believe strongly in their right to vote and want to use it. It's not really skewering polls, it doesn't have an effect if only one of two can win and they're voting neither.

    It was more so a rhetorical question to you even though I'd honestly love to ask them personally why they did it, understanding it was a waste, and hoping for some enlightenment from them lol

    no, pennsylvania is 20 votes and alaska is 3

    trump needs 26, that's 23...


    if he gets arizona and michigan that's 27 and he will be solid there

    or electoral college flakes and they leave it to popularity vote
    (if that happens)


    meaning trump wins

    its all over in 35 minutes or so I can wait

    minnesota and maine really need to hurry the bloody **** up

    michigan is not budging....

    not being funny but if only black people in detroit had a lower incarceration rate, they'd be able to vote and boost hillary over that little hill to a win
