NO! NO! NO!If EVERYBODY who is fed up with Trump goes out to vote, almost EVERY single state will color blue next election.
But that will not happen because of commercials will run on tv, the red white balloons that will fall down at the national conventions, nor what major people in politics will say in the talk shows.
People have to be convinced to go out and vote. And that means: Field work, bloody fieldwork. Going from door to door, talk to neighbors,
Support local actions with your presents. Hand out leaflets in parking lots, Helping people to register, helping people to actually go to the polling station.
All kind of excuses to stay home, and do nothing but grumbling on the good old Interwebs and open another soda, are easily made.
Like I said, you do not understand how our system works. You could get everyone that does not like donnie in, say, california to vote against him and it will not change the outcome of the election one tiny bit. This is something always get wrong.
The popular vote means nothing. Because of the electoral college it works out there are only a few states that actually decide an election.
That is only part of the problem with the electoral college, also your voting power depends on where you live.
