How does the electoral college work?[1]

[Posted on : 2020-10-09 by Anita Bhosly] All 50 US states and Washington DC have a set number of "electors" in the electoral college – roughly proportionate to the size of each state.

Each state gets at least three electoral votes because the amount is equal to its total number of Senators and Representatives in the US Congress. Washington DC also gets three electoral college votes, meaning a total of 538 electors form the Electoral College.

California, the largest state, has 55 electoral votes, Texas, the next largest, gets 38. New York and Florida have 29 each.

All but two states – Maine and Nebraska – use a winner-takes-all system, so if you win the most votes in a state, you take its entire haul of electoral college votes.

To become president either candidate needs to win a majority of the 538 electors - i.e. 270 electors.

While the Constitution does not dictate that electors follow the popular vote, many US states have laws requiring them to do so. These laws have been challenged by electors voting for someone else on occasion, but in July, the US Supreme Court ruled that electors must follow the popular vote in states that have passed such a law.

The electoral college system does usually reflect the popular vote – presidents have won the electoral vote while losing the popular vote just five times in US history. The most recent instance was in 2016, when Donald Trump won the electoral college but Hillary Clinton, his Democratic opponent, won the popular vote.

Israel-UAE Abraham Accord 2020[2]

[Posted on : 2020-08-25 by Muhammad Ismail] The most critical factor to consider when analyzing the Abrahamic Accord is its timing. The Covid-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented damage to the economies of the United States and Israel, and leaders of both countries have been unable to put in place an adequate response to the outbreaks. Millions of jobs have been lost. The health infrastructure has failed to produce the expected results. Trump is even in warmer waters than Netanyahu, who has barely emerged from corruption charges. In America, the Black Lives Matter movement has polarized the electorate in favor of Democrats unless a miraculous campaign changes it. The two leaders needed a diplomatic victory and the UAE was urged to come forward. Without a doubt, the UAE-Israel deal will be used in the United States and Israel to score points and win voters. Links between the UAE and Israel have already been established through secret channels. 2020 was a good time to expose the relationship as a dramatic breakthrough, obviously for reasons unrelated to peace in the Middle East.

Is Trump trying to sabotage postal service to rig vote?[3]

[Posted on : 2020-08-23 by Marina Vorne] U.S. Postal Director General Louis DeJoy, a key ally of President Donald Trump, took control of the postal service in June and quickly implemented cuts and operational changes that disrupted mail delivery operations.
President Trump supports postal voting; in fact, use one to vote in Florida.

He sees mail-in ballots very differently, warning several times that he is subject to voter fraud and could corrupt the election, but there is little evidence to support it.

States have rigorous procedures to ensure the security of the ballot.

A recent analysis by the Washington Post of three states that conduct universal mail-order elections revealed a "minuscule" rate of votes that were potentially fraudulent.

Joe Biden says he will block us if necessary due to coronavirus[4]

[Posted on : 2020-08-23 by Aleem Raja] U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has said he will do "whatever it takes" to tackle the spread of the coronavirus in the country, including blocking the United States if deemed necessary.

“I would close it; I would listen to the scientists, ”Biden told ABCs David Muir in a joint interview with his running mate, Senator Kamala Harris, which airs Sunday. "We will do whatever it takes to save lives."

Bidens comments represent the strongest potential action proposed by the Democratic presidential candidate to stop the spread of the virus that killed at least 175,000 people in the United States on Friday night.

President Donald Trump has resisted calls for another shutdown despite an increase in coronavirus cases in many states this summer. Trump and members of his administration have argued that a new lockdown will cause irreparable damage to the economy.

"We wont shut down the country anymore. We wont have to," Trump said in an interview with Fox News in June.

Biden, who appeared in his first interview since officially becoming the Democratic presidential candidate this week, strongly disagreed with Trumps reasoning.

“We cannot move the country until we control the virus. To begin with, this is the fundamental flaw in the thinking of this administration, ”he said. "For the country to continue to function and move, for the economy to grow and for people to be employed, you need to fix the virus."

Most states have allowed businesses deemed essential to stay open after the outbreak of the pandemic, while restaurants, bars and theaters have been forced to close to help slow its spread. The countrys current spike is being fueled by states, mostly in the southern and western United States, which are easing restrictions on non-essential businesses early on - a move that medical professionals say would lead to higher costs. infections.
