41. I used to believe that. I no longer do. I believe that no matter what the odds
are of winning the popular vote that candidates are being chosen by those with access to the delivery of the results. The failed struggle by citizens to get an honest competent registrar of voters to run elections in Los Angeles County, the largest jurisdiction in the US by citizens is the canary in the coal mine for my view of elections. With the unholy association of privatized voting vendors & their lobbyists coupled with government elections officials and "elected" government officeholders who are at the mercy of the vendors to "win" their races, we have a dangerous catch-22 on our hands.
