Today I watched some videos on Electoral College. It wasn't an easy task to do, and I kind of didn't understand it. This is what I got out of it: When you vote, you don't always get what you want. Even though you take a vote and the majority wins, they still don't pick what the majority voted for — the electoral college does. For example, if you vote take a vote for Obama and more people voted for Obama more than Romney they don't just pick Obama. First the two candidate have a debate. Then you have to wait until the election.
This video from The New York Times is helpful in understanding the electoral college.
