I just published an article about the U.S. Presidential election.  Here 
is the link:


The article humorously explains to non-math folks:

* Vote splitting

* Vote concentration

* Single-mark ballots

* Approval voting

* What future generations will use, namely 1-2-3 ballots and pairwise 

* How we got the first, and last, black president

* Why Obama won re-election

* Why George W. Bush won

* The full map of politics, including the up and down

* Why a single-mark ballot is not asking for your first choice

* Why it's OK to lie when you tell people how you marked your 
single-mark ballot

* And more

If you are on Twitter, here is a link to my Twitter page, which should

Please feel free to convey feedback either here, or on Twitter, or at 
Democracy Chronicles (in that order for how often I'll check for comments).

As I see it, this is an excellent opportunity to educate lots of people, 
especially in the U.S., about the need for election-method reform.

And an opportunity for the rest of the world to understand what the heck 
is going on in the U.S. presidential election.
