D- What happened after the circa 40 percent popular vote for Mr. Lincoln in 
Nov. 1860 ??? (noting that Mr. Lincoln was denied ballot access in about 10 
southern States)

Answer-- It embolded the political extremists in the southern States.

Result -- Nothing good for the circa 620,000 dead in the 1861-1865 U.S. Civil 
War and the tens of thousands maimed for life and their unhappy relatives 
mourning for their lifetimes.  

Let the extremists play games in p.r. legislative bodies. 

For chief executive officers, median/ central/ majority winners are quite OK.
