In your opinion, what percentage of voting age Americans know what the Electoral College is and how it determines the president?
Maybe 30 percent -- and that is being generous.
Yeah, I'd go a bit lower, R1, to between 20 and 25%.
Less than 10%. We're getting dumber and dumber just the way the Republicans like us.
Well although they might understand it, they still don't completely get it. I have a freeper FB "friend" and fellow Californian who was posting about get out the vote for Romney because California has 55 electoral votes and he needs those because it's winner take all.
I'd venture 15% have some vague familiarity or better.
Try again, dearies. I taught American Government at four different colleges, and it's less than 5% at best. Many of them don't even understand it after I've explained it to them.
I wonder how many get that we could end up with a Romney/Biden administration, in the event of a tie. If it comes down to 269 to 269, it could happen.
