I hear too many people use the excuse, “My vote doesn’t count” to avoid going to the polling booths. This is certainly not the attitude of a supportive American. However, as the public gets more educated on ‘the convention’, I can see where their apprehension may grow..?
Apparently there has been less than a dozen people chosen by the convention in our history. But I am sure that if people are aware of what’s going on (which is unlikely today in most cases), they will be angry. My guess is that the media will give it their best to make a big splash in the news if the nomination is ‘stolen‘ from one of the candidates.
