RE: Ross Perot, 1930-2019
I just looked back at the election returns from 1992. It is interesting how the 1992 election shows the total absurdity of the electoral college. Bush or Clinton would get all the electoral votes from a state, and yet they only had to win about 40% of the vote in the state. Anybody can do math can see just how absurd the electoral college is. Perot got about 19% of the popular vote and got zero electoral votes. It also made an election that was actually pretty close look like a landslide.

Of course, it's also the main thing that keeps the ridiculous duopoly alive and well. Without the electoral college, the duopoly would have died a well-deserved death a long time ago.
