Ratification of the US Constitution

AP.GOPO: CON‑1 (EU), CON‑1.C (LO), CON‑1.C.1 (EK), CON‑1.C.2 (EK), CON‑1.C.3 (EK), CON‑1.C.4 (EK)


“Because of our two-party system, voters often find themselves voting for the ‘lesser of two evils,’ rather than a candidate they really feel would do the best job. . . .
"Since most states distribute their electoral votes on a winner-take-all basis, the smaller party has no chance to gain support without seeming to take this support from one of the major parties. Few people will support a party that never wins, especially when they are supporting that party at the possible expense of their least favorite candidate taking power.”
