  •  And why do we care about the popular vote? (none)
    Did the loss of the popular vote prevent Bush from being President in 2000?

    I tell you there is a fire. They have this day set a blazing torch to the temple of constitutional liberty and, please God, we shall have no more peace forever.

      I am not arguing that Bush was rightly elected, just that, clearly, the will of the majority was that Bush be President.

      Just like in 2000 the will was that Gore be president.

      Again, you are misreading what I wrote.  

      People's views have consequences; the American public in 2004 held by a ~3M vote margin that Bush should be president.  Vote counting, inconclusive electoral college results, etc aside, democratically speaking, the people got what they wanted.
