The voter does not vote directly for the presidential candidates instead the elector-candidates are the ones being voted rather than the presidential and vice presidential nominees (Lichtman). The elections are held on Tuesday in November after every four years. Normally the voters cast a single vote for the slate of electors who are pledged to the party presidential and vice presidential candidates they desire to choose. The elected candidate is ultimately got from the slate winning the most popular votes. This paper discusses the outcome of the 2016 Electoral College vote for the Senate in 23rd gives extra three electors to the District of Columbia. In conclusion the Electoral College vote for Senate is predicted by many polls to favor Hillary Clinton. The polls are based on the interviews from people in various states and the analysis of the current political situation in the country. The polls show that Clinton has a lot of support from many states something that can see her secure the ticket to the Whitehouse. However Trump has a slight support compared to Hillary Clinton. This is attributed to the radical principles of the candidate which might scare the voters and reduce his chances of winning. Work Cited Bugh Gary ed.
