In other threads it has been asserted that not voting for The Donald is, in effect, voting for Hillary. There is a certain logic (not necessarily valid, IMO) to this position, but the unviersality of the statement ignores the fact that the president is chosen by the Electoral College. For this reason, a vote really counts in only a handful of states: Some states will overwhelmingly vote for the Republican candidate; some will overwhelmingly vote for the Democratic candidate. Only in states where the vote is close will my vote really matter. Take Oklahoma, for example. It has, by a large margin, assigned its Electoral College votes to a Republican since 1968. The only close race was in 1976, when Jimmy Carter (a Southern Baptist, then, in a largely Southern Baptist state) narrowly lost to Gerald Ford. Since then, only Bill Clinton has come relatively close in 1992, and he was overwhelmingly rejected in 1996. Since then the Republican candidate has regularly polled 60 percent or more of the vote. Mitt, in fact, though a Mormon, collected 67 percent of the vote, slightly less than Ronald Reagan's total in 1984. So, given that my vote won't really matter in the upcoming election, what moral responsibility do I have in casting my vote in November?
