    For those of us who remember Dallas, this comes as a small mercy.

    If these numbers are true, then it is a travesty.

    No... it's balanced a different way... it makes a sort of sense...

    Well traditionally England chooses the PM...

    Place with lots of voters has more sway... shocker at 10!

    Who'd have guessed, eh?

    Harvard professor says there are 'grave concerns' about Donald Trump's mental stability
    'An apparent inability to distinguish between fantasy and reality leads us to question his fitness for the immense responsibilities of the office'

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/w...n-donald-trump-mental-stability-a7482586.html

    Three leading professors of psychiatry have written to Barack Obama to express their “grave concern” over Donald Trump’s mental stability.

    In the letter addressed to the US president, doctors from Harvard Medical School and the University of California have urged him to order a “full medical and neuropsychiatric evaluation” before the President-elect takes office in January.

    The group said it could not speculate on a diagnosis, but Mr Trump’s “grandiosity, impulsivity, hypersensitivity to criticism” led them to believe he was unfit for office.

    'If' could mean the results are true, it could mean otherwise. As with all of politics, I have little faith in what the experts tell me and especially what Government tells me.

    It doesn't. The party chooses.
    It would be a poor system if California alone determined the President, as the population votes in their self interest. Given the huge geography of the US across multilpe time zones, concentrating power in one (or a very few densly populated states) would not give a equitable result.

    So why isn't Tim Farron PM?

    Is this a for real post or are you just arguing for the sake of it?

    So areas with more voters should have less influence for areas with less voters? Riiight

    Too few Liberal MPs elected.
    In a country as large and diverss as the US it is appropriate (Fewer, please)

    I agree with you Lan but do you agree with the influence London/Westminster-centric politics has on the rest of GB.

    Well that'd be where decolution comes in... which is what the USA has... 50 states with 50 governors...

    This wasn't a local election... it was a national one... and the loser won...

    But the discussion is about the USA... where the 50 states have equal devolution...

    We don't have that.
