We all have this tendency to assume that Obama won and is president by popular vote. just a little story to illustrate what I mean. A group of students are running for class president, campaign, working hard to show themselves to be the most popular. The vote is conducted, but the Dean has a daughter that is dating one of the candidates, and she has aspirations of Prom Queen the other is a math major. The dean is supposed to count the ballots but instead he, in the privacy of his office scans some of the ballots and does not find any of his daughters boyfriends votes so he dumps them in the trash. at the assembly announces that of 700 students, everyone votes, it is close but his daughters boyfriend wins at 57%. Who can challenge this?
