Please address one of the following prompts.
- The book suggests that most people vote on the basis of partisanship. Do feel that that partisanship is a good source of information for voting? Are there sources that could be better? Explain.
- How important is the use of the primary and caucus system to determining the outcome of the Presidential nomination process? Is there a better way to determine who the nominee of the major parties should be? How would you change the rules to make it better?
- The 2016 election was the fourth time in American history where a Republican candidate won the Presidency despite not winning the popular vote. No Democrat has ever done so. Do you feel that the Republican advantage in the Electoral College distorts politics in America? Should the U.S. continue to use it, or abandon it for a simple plurality or majority vote? Justify your position.
