The Next President in Idle Banter Posted July 26, 2016 Out of curiousity, is there any actual dispute here that either Trump or Hillary is going to win the presidential election? Assuming not, isn't each vote effectively +1, -1, or 0? I mean I get that there's a bit more significance to a vote as sending a signal, but, like... pragmatically, aren't these the actual realistic potential outcomes of the election? So... what? Why is this an infuriating stance? No one needs to support her beyond this one thing, but if this is effectively a two person race, I at least feel pretty confident about which president I would rather have. Your vote is, as always, yours to spend, but it's a vote not a wish. Well no negative, it's just +1 for either or 0 for both. If there were such thing as a negative vote that would be interesting.
