This is NOT the Presidential election. The President is not, like our
Prime minister, the leader of the party that wins the election. The
President is elected by everyone. Anyone can be a candidate, if born as
a US Citizen. (The Austrian in charge of California can't run).
These current elections are nearly meaningless Beauty parades by
Democrat & Republican parties to pick their Candidates. I don't think me
exhorting USAians to vote will make much difference. I think 10% to 15%
of Party members vote?
The real election you don't have to be a party Member, nor do any of the
Candidates have to belong to a party. Michael Bloomberg can ignore all
these current elections and run if he likes. If Hillary Clinton lost the
Nominiation she can still run for President. It's a strange concept of
Democracy where each candidate is fuelled by Millions or Billions and
basically there are only two very similar parties.
