because it IS the popular vote in each state the decides the electors.

so without a doubt Bush only lost due to the split vote.

I don't disagree with anything you've posted here.

I was responding to a previous poster who responded to a question about whether Trump might be better off running as an independent in 2020, and presented a scenario where Trump might get 34% of the vote. Was that supposed to be a winning scenario? LOL.

Ross Perot got 0 Electoral Votes with 21% of the popular vote. He didn't win a single state. The best he did was get just over 30% of the popular vote in Maine -- and I only think he finished SECOND among the three major candidates in two or three states.

How does Trump get 270 Electoral Votes with 34% of the popular vote? And if NOBODY gets 270 Electoral Votes, then how does Trump manage to win a special election in Congress where almost everyone is a Democrat or a Republican?
