A way -- I. I'll make and their wins this clue thanks for joining us today. All right it's the day after this election meant change the poll appear. Reelection is finally passed -- so how you feel unrelated jaded just glad glad it's over glad it's done. You -- -- jaded or just glad that it's all over with I'm certainly glad that is over with I can't listen anymore speeches don't wanna hear many more. -- garlands a prediction about whether or not though they'll be reaching across the island whether to have their hands will be class in friendship and bipartisan movement. And your response to that opinion poll. Was primarily know seventy some percent of you say no scores he's a non scientific polls is just people who were listening and people who get online and cast your vote. Please do that Ed. And a WWL dot com -- but that's not what we're gonna talk about though is the election being over and we'll also talk about. Okay now that it's passed. Let's let's talk about our -- time shuttle around here about how you vote here in the state. We had a couple of people yesterday who sent a text messages talking about how open -- and organ they do it all the all the voting is -- balanced people don't show up. Anymore. About that what do you think of that is it time to do away with the Electoral College. And and what are you think is the best way to physically actively vote whereas there is the absolute least chance of any kind of fraud -- suppression. OK and so just take your calls on that beat the it would not affect this election. Because President Obama warned them. Though popular vote and he won the electoral vote. But there's still PI got text people I ask you mean it's just that and ask him before in the comments saying that your vote doesn't count your vote doesn't count. So I'm wondering if you think engine. Does your vote count I said yes yes your vote counts because we're talking about the Electoral College this date. Was gonna go. For Romney the whole state didn't I mean in in no. In Orleans. It was like you know I think Romney won the State's roughly 6040. In Orleans so Obama won it 80%. You know so it they got the whole the whole. Kitten -- total. But it's you've also got states that were like OK it was carried by one or 2% of the vote air grow although electoral votes went to that candidate. One way or other. Do you think that's fair is it time to read there's a movement out there too by the way is I think there's nine states that have signed onto it and I've had discussed had a couple people on. It's been -- to end. Couple years but the to have people -- talk about this but there is a bike or completely bipartisan movement. But Democrats and Republicans. And I'm -- I'm assured me that bill libertarians would climb on in their too because they're looking for percentage of the vote. Because I think if we went to a popular vote I'm still stuck on you know I'm a minimum on a plum and found in favor of it but I'm looking at a more. But if they went if we went to a popular vote to -- to elect a president. -- their I think I'm wondering you tell me but I think more people would think that their vote does count. That people maybe don't show up to the polls does go to states already called foursome was just those nine swing states are there they don't. One reason is -- because the majority those people here are gonna go and vote. But if your vote actually did count if your vote did go in truth -- pot for your candidate and they would have -- an actual number of votes there. Do you think more people. Would look at a third party. You know Gary Johnson I think there we a lot of people called about him I think you got like 1% of -- there's been DNA -- me. -- -- -- But there's a lot of people going well I'm not gonna throw my vote away. By voting for somebody aren't you know and -- I want the I want the president reelected -- want the other side elected. But that if I don't vote for one of those two because frankly the whole system right now is set up. For two party system it it basically they kind of got together and and doing whatever they -- to quash the opposition. Or or this reached or not resurgence of the Iraq a rising of a powerful. Third party. But -- you know so because a lot of people think their vote their vote just doesn't count but -- If if they were good to go into that kind of mixed do you think more people are actually show to the polls and I got to admit I think they would. I think more people would actually go to the polls and vote. We had I don't know the exact number turnout was I can look it up -- might have a printed up her president's -- -- premium informed me. Now well and it only what I have printed it doesn't have the percentage of registered voters who actually went out and voted so I don't have the percentage although Tom -- ever had a moment stopping. They're expecting. They were expecting seventy. Point 1% something like that and the highest turnout. Last go round was like 65 point one almost 66%. So there was a bigger step up -- turn out to vote. And yet I still got text messages just that they were talking about this nor does my vote really count yes your vote -- Do you think your vote would count even more if they were if it were they are up a popular vote and not the Electoral College. You know because again and it in this particular election it would not a made any difference because the president carried both the popular vote and electoral vote. OK but you know Al Gore got roughly -- half a million more votes. Then bush and there's been a couple of not many but a few situations where it's happened. But. Did that. Does might vote count come into play. Will we see more people actually get up and voting no would you see the same. So I don't know you tell me. At one of the things I wish we would do. Is go back to the states electing the senators. There on the state legislature -- that. The people elect the house -- that's why you got every two years there's representatives and and if something happens to represented have been in the first pick for example it comes to mind is Gabby Giffords okay. There's nobody to be appointed to fill that seat. And that's because that is the seat that is supposed to be so the closest to the actual people and the electorate. And the election comes every two years. Every six years. 13 of the senators turned over. But it used to be that the legislature is okay the Electoral College would elect a president. The legislatures. Would elect the senators and the people directly what elect the House of Representatives. It went to a vote of the people now for the senators but they still got -- six years I mean if they were gonna go. To the people electing the senators directly I think they should cut it back to four. But the reason I think they should go back. -- through the state legislatures themselves. Electing the senators is because both the senators are supposed to be. The representatives of the states. And inside the beltway and the House of Representatives is supposed to be the -- the representatives of the directly of the people. And I think there inside the beltway has too much power. I think it has too much stroke. An enhanced you know for instance there's there's rules inside the senate where one senator can anonymously and and both of our senators have done this. I don't approve of it but it's the rules and customs and they can anonymously hold -- a vote. One person one senator can hold up a whole vote. You know and I just don't agree with -- But also the states themselves can argue back and forth about what's going on. Up inside the the beltway but they don't really have a lot of say so other than sending an email or something nowadays are -- before call -- letter. But frankly I think of the states themselves were still electing the senators than the state. Legislature. Would be able to actually. Recall them. To the state so that they are not inside the beltway as say. Means of protesting. So often off group of senators got together enough states got to -- went -- on and on -- pushing this through too fast they can withdraw and not have a quorum. That would give more power to the states. Which I mean it of course dumps a whole lot more responsibility. On the states. As you know so you -- where's the responsibility audition to stay inside the beltway open washed under shouldn't be more and more responsibility being brought back to the states. And step up to -- so I mean there there's a question right there. But that's that's a pretty opinion poll in -- sums wrong my computer won't refresh and get it up there so okay. We this time sort of support for saying most are taking your calls got a bunch of text messages already in my opinion poll is the election over the election is past us. How are you feeling elated jaded or just glad it's all over. Which one which one do you think related to or you jaded re just glad that it's behind Jews on the move on and what do you think about our electoral process. You think it's time for us to seriously look at doing away with the electoral college and again. Again it would've made any difference in this election. But. Would it. Make a difference in future ones and would you think -- vote itself is more important. If your vote was went directly into the pot of the candidate of your choice all the people in Orleans parish. Who voted for President Obama I don't wanna say your vote didn't count but this state went around me. And all the people like in California I think think pro -- -- -- them only 60% or forty so 40% 38 or 40% of that state. Did not vote for -- for him but all of those votes. Went and -- -- she would would you prefer to see do you think your vote would count more and would you be more inclined to vote. If we got rid of the electoral process and went to a popular vote. For present United States and also talk about other things that went around like legalizing pot and some other things don't talk about the tolls on the bridges two more events stand. As far as showing a big 87 AWW 2670. 86688. Nerves early seventy get a -- -- you're gonna -- by the way -- -- -- we will be carrying Joseph vets and Drew Brees is press conference although they normally start at 140 and they pushed him back to life. I don't know. 2:40 someone that 3 o'clock so will will will carry him when they go Christian Derrick is out that. -- says things camp saints for a facility only airliner when it cranks up pillow you'll join us and walk a center. But yet is Wednesday Joseph Witt and and Drew Brees will have a press conference we will carry that -- 267866889087. They are told to mining 78 seminary got a bunch attacks. I got a phone calls through here's operating opinion poll the election is finally over so how are you feeling elated jaded -- just glad to. Let's get your phone calls here we get some numbers in the second -- how you -- Jay thanks for grown up. You can Jane. I don't hear. What's wrong. I got which don't hold their. Okay well trees don't RJ called back to six thorny seventy Montreal -- courier for a text matches every vote counts. But they can't all be the deciding vote by some folks logic any vote for Romney didn't count because he didn't win -- this thing again and yet that's that's. That's not you know and I heard I heard who's been here since some one of the pundits and talking about that's like. Just like a baseball game is like -- you struck out so you're the guy whose whose whose -- is well know if everybody would play better. Then at that strikeout would remaining difference. Our when he got to that point. Here's another when the problem I have Electoral College is it skews the numbers. 30550659. Point 8% vs if you look at -- popular vote fifty something that's almost 10% difference. Here's one no candidate should receive all votes. -- -- -- If you thought Louisiana didn't count now it really wouldn't count there are more people in New York City than in Louisiana. Popular vote would not work I do think that the Electoral College inch. Should be split meaning of the majority of a given region vote for Obama he should receive one electoral vote. No candidate should receive all the votes I see okay part of that yes that's that argument on the other side and and I've had that that comment from a bunch of people who say you know. The reason there is an electoral at the -- the Electoral College came about and I and I'm working off. Civics memories here. There was a compromise between those who wanted the popular vote. Two of two of the people to elect and those who wanted the states to elect so the people now vote for electors who elect the president. I life I have to look it up but I think quite frankly that the electors that we have that you voted for. Ordered a 100% bound to vote for the person that they said they're gone. I mean it's it's of little known rule and it's never been used. I mean they always vote for the person they voted for but between now and sometime in December when they actually get together and do the voting. I'm I'm not sure. But I -- I just leave it that. And this missile launch is horrendous stuff. More you text. Saying the Electoral College protect smaller states is nonsense popular vote can make voter turn out the great equalizer. Right now states get the same electoral votes whether one -- one million voters show up and that's true too. I mean I got arguments across across the board and frankly. -- Frankly -- the movement that's out there to coach to a popular vote. For the presidential election is this pretty much bipartisan and I think there's nine states that have signed on board to do it. And Vera. Their deal. Is once they have reached. 270. Electoral votes once they have enough states on board regardless of which states they are. Once they have enough states on board that their totals. Come above to -- and come to 270 that means they have enough states. To elect the president in which case they will be in flip. Or else pushed through -- who knows maybe they'll need an amendment but maybe they'll just put themselves there are other states Nebraska believes one and I think -- and -- But Nebraska they basically dole out there is by population. Buyout by popular vote. So was I don't think I don't think they get. One you know one voter one note candidate gets all the more popular vote I think they actually -- out. Anyway it went 02678668890870. -- I told for an honest rebel call Jackson pearl river high known Jack thanks opponent. -- -- -- And it gave it any kind of good the last. Hey you know what. -- think they alternative -- And and it and it you know as other the other thing you got is lion on the -- would turn on your -- and holding your breath forever that's and I'll take the sunset almost faced any minute and getting you know getting you know -- -- -- -- you write what you think about all this would how how you vote. -- question they're gonna. About electro votes I think they bear addiction be. I'm under the senate that would wanted to state at some electro votes issuing need to percent of they -- hope that they del via. Good idea -- and -- the popular vote yeah I agree that such an extent but. -- -- -- open -- but I think they elect so those should be divided percentage was because. You know you wanted to pay about 70%. And pay per -- but the other one. He divide that and I think we'll see where that goes I mean that would be a better. Video that some state still want to point 5% Peru have forty opera. And Obama's -- has done this 5050%. Plus one right through 4050%. Minus one you know. -- but but but the thing of it is true. Look. Between -- in this only like five or six or seven states. Right that have it's you know I mean between Texas and California and new York and Jersey. Ohio. I mean and they have huge just I think 50% of this country itself. Who lives within a hundred miles of open ocean either East Coast West Coast -- Gulf Coast. Most correct and west so you know what frankly was somebody completely ignore if it was only the popular vote would that be the end of the quotes swing states or would they be forced to go to more say I mean. I don't remember Romney coming down near the one Tommy did he didn't know anything about the the coasts but guess what a lot of people -- thing about Archos I don't know I -- -- Iowa and what. And then out of what about Ohio that unit that it was close in Ohio. And now I don't know how many electoral votes in the air -- in them and able to -- no -- What in Ohio I think there's like eighteen this is if this 53. In California. -- that's the most populous -- huge you know that's a huge chunk. So did a lot. And -- and you look outlet. Nine out of Ohio and and Obama eleven so you stayed -- -- big tree. Did that would be a bad idea that it is given a hose state Monday as a means -- -- having you know everybody does enough. Mode it's different areas like each -- to have more and more popularity than dollars and I don't think we'll be immoral. I -- -- content that Babbitt in an idiotic to live make a winner I think they'll get it. -- well and you know what commitments now all's fair love and -- -- to act out. Hi Jack big -- we are -- a news -- was going on thanks for you called 260170. Chris Wells in the newsroom. -- -- -- some more calls coming up for this day heard Chris Miller we will be carrying a press conference live whenever they crank up to four usually crank up around now. But they pushed him back so to forty to fifty. Whenever it is we'll get -- you are pretty opinion -- we election is over how do you feel elated. Text messages -- our perk of the -- -- senate shot. Fifteen dollars that got only 750 -- is locally on an operators are gonna best bank for over sixty years. Try to -- -- -- is this damages homemade rolls. Home in on Iran album Williams a moment to moment -- it -- more. One of their daily specials voted best hold on the wall restaurant but -- best to just one intent. -- sandwich shop -- -- right now mind who wants personal account to lose 60187. Is an average day how you don't thanks for -- pure and W -- -- But George -- our column I do think there would be a good idea at their house. Some certain formats should work of the original form what you were just there as far as -- -- sugar or elected. I'll still a problem refute that may be is -- ships. In you know you're state legislature in -- -- period. Period of fact you know oh. We don't or are democratic senator in all Washington cares where the public in Maryland. Awful blah and all that chart there might be opted not to be some constraints -- that would as as bad as south. Artist that think the. I -- -- -- -- that's a that's a good idea. Except that if you know but merely Andrews won what three Enron down. I got I mean you know she's going for her and she's Oregon for a third mean she has. Basically. Got the gate and if if there -- if this situation like that. And or or bitter too if this situation we're like that and they were column back just to calm back there would be enough. Outrage from the supporters who elected him that the legislature would back off but the and the fact is right now they don't have that kind of stroke. You know that and that's supposed to be so that's why they elect we elect a legislature that legislature -- senator. And in the legislature can draw them back if there's something going on and looks like there's a big steamrolled going on up there and that just gives more power to the states. But -- you know they have to still bottom line be answerable to the people. You know bright but in another singers or what -- electric errors that we published just social prepared you know that was set up many many years ago because. Good news didn't spread like it they're not saying it may be. Everything should be decided by apocalypse or put it should probably be a little bit more reflective of popular vote there and yeah we will have a situation like back in 2000 where he -- somebody actually get more popular approach. And the person on the election. Mean. My guess there are -- pairs like who represents the majority of the United States does is that the people or is -- the region I mean for instance more people. Live. And I made -- I made a false statement the other important. False I was a little bit misinformed. But there are more people that live in New York City as a -- -- live in this state. You know what what are the fact of the matter is New York City and -- lived there for three years ago a lot of friends up there but they got a import all kinds of such. I mean -- state Louisiana. You know we can kind of be self sufficient I mean New York as a whole tend to but the state -- but the city itself this is just it's huge you know. I'll pick a couple more portrait -- -- -- -- -- Gary Johnson or seen in a Jeep ripped a lot of pork barrel. In August thought it was ironic how they finally put it born after the election either had a couple spots like that. You know before yesterday he might actually got 5% of the vote because I mean we keep our league it is message out on national TV I was the first commercial real. -- artist in it didn't make sure wonder. Yeah I mean I've seen him a couple of new stores but an actual sit down interview I mean I -- sixty minutes couldn't give them. One segment. In hell are we know a lot because they were disparate group but anyway what I like to say is. Hopefully these people will get together the house and the city. Or will make some compromises. Stand in and you know we've got to deal with this for another four years I don't know -- -- -- -- Romney would have had been elected but let's make the best of it. They they they can make some kind of compromise or -- Taking god doesn't -- -- tax penalties the health care bill. And do you walk coaster of a balanced budget or something maybe they can work together because the last two years have been horrible. Now well what can -- say that it don't look any polar any more. And let's not kid ourselves the senate. The senate picked up a couple more dims within -- supermajority the house picked up a couple of more. Republicans but it's you know you I mean we frankly basically have the same. Blow that we have had for the last two years and him out yeah it's. And straight objected to meet or try to work against the president because he can be reelected hopefully. -- because that was a bottle -- that was how we're -- where's there's such polarized. People expect a lot of people just -- do anything because it's you -- it might help you know that's the press room and re election. But it's also it works the other side of the aisle to mean he now doesn't have to worry about getting reelected so mean when he reaches across the -- To report which he says he's gonna do and well he should because compromise is part of the game. What's gonna what's he gonna have his hand when he reaches. And what are they prepared to give back to him so if nothing else to sit down and have a conversation you know I mean literally. Have a conversation and just go. We are fundamentally against this you were fundamentally against that. Some place in the middle we got stuff we can agree on May be tested though. But the thing about is maybe they should go for some easy stuff so they can you know feel each other out but the fact the matter has come January the first. There's the cliff you know some mean they got they got a lame duck congress that the gonna have to make a bunch of these decisions on you know that's that's that's the killer. While I just wish that they were remembered that they've worked for bunch that they represent the people -- stage. There and not allow these ridge. You know individuals say -- huge corporation. That lobbied their and that we are the ones that are really gonna pay the price if they don't get to the -- well. I'll tell you the truth of the rich people are part of the American way -- however. We should be our only lobbyists I mean that's why we have members of the house you know first there and the elected every two years I mean frankly what we should do is lobby ourselves and make sure our representatives know. How we feel every day. And be our own lobbyists so that maybe you'll have more stroke and the people that show up. And offer money for their next election I gotta go jail appreciate your call. 2670. More a thousand comments on the begins seven era and opponents back -- -- -- -- -- except they WW 2601 point seven is and number 866889087. -- from on -- -- opinion poll on WW yelled out come. Election is finally over how are you feeling elated jaded -- just glad it's over 60% of your jaded. 13% of related 28% glad it's all over. More calls more tax let's get back to phones who's next up nick is on -- -- high you know Nick Young thought under the -- It's -- are you sciences thanks for colon and called -- -- that the IPO policy and Electoral College -- I'm used to the idea of a new ending. The literature at college auctions -- -- report. Last year sort -- -- out -- what you -- about -- The -- candidates would have gotten a percentage electoral votes they own that percent is popular vote each state. But -- aren't abolishing the Electoral College altogether. And not -- -- spoke -- a -- you probably hear a lot more current are denied you -- not -- via closed market circles much. It. My third party candidate. We work you know I don't know many Democrats. Would -- are registered Democrats who want approach are sent socialist candidate. As a much here conservatives. Saying water I don't wanna bulk Republica by the public turn agreed. -- -- -- -- So I'm going to we -- also -- college altogether and woke up. Apple -- -- it would and oh lead only -- Democrats just repeat Coke are part Bogut putting. Deacon circle too much. Ice. From what I hear and I don't hear everything. For from what I hear yes there would be more. Of the Republican or conservative vote that we're probably lean more towards the libertarian -- candidate then you would see. The Democrat leaning too rough on you know a socialist or I mean look this Communist Party and so there was two different common as pars on the bound if you -- -- the look and so are actually two different socialist. The I got to remember now. But ask for a percentage I mean it hit Epperson has the electoral vote. That the president Warren you know I don't wanna -- handle because he did not receive a quote mandate I mean it wasn't a landslide. But he won the you know decisively -- no there's no arguing that he did want. But that is our window the argument will it wouldn't -- if you if you went to a popular vote if we had a popular vote of gore would want. You know 500000 votes so that's one of the argument you hear. When I do hear stuff like that on the left yet that's what I hear they were too -- -- the popular vote but -- right there I think the third party were probably spurring more. From the right but does a -- out -- left that would go that would that would look. That would make you know maybe get appealed to buy a by a libertarian candidate if they said the right things that you know. It's but I yes I agree which I think it would do more to the right but that doesn't mean you know it it dates they still may have people out their donuts you're throwing your vote away. But. If you. Are well I mean it's a good concern and and somebody else I think the only way you can ever seen the rise of the third parties if you do go to the popular vote and I got admit. I believe that. But let's throw this into the mix if -- go to the popular vote. Should you get 50% plus one should there be a runoff all right there's 25 candidates for president depends on the state you -- took. Gary Johnson yet he may color but if you don't get fifty plus 1% you should not be the president of the United States. With only 40% or 38% of the of the above the popular vote that was cast you should get more. Again due to popular -- upbeat like any other position I would run off so. And I think that was same thing that happened when Clinton was an office one though when mount. Ross Perot ran to he took an hour and a vote await Clinton won the the the -- -- electoral vote easily but he didn't get 50% plus a vote of actual elect a popular vote because -- Perot took away some. I don't know man it's interesting couldn't it's a conundrum is ordered to -- After I take care to six only semi. Popular vote with a runoff just like every other election as a text messages -- -- I'm which take what you gotta remember the logistics involved and Elvis I mean you're talking about 300 million people I don't know how many -- registered to vote but at least. What was it fifty -- -- hundred -- 120 million some odd people going to the polls again within thirty days of each other. Don't hit it I I think that's a fair way to do it but. I don't know -- made may have to figure out may be has to be an online thing -- mail in ballot type of thing I don't know anyway back and -- calls and comments rapid as big a semi WW. That's an interesting text messages to I stood in line for one hour and today I feel like it was a waste of time Louise him -- known as a Republican state anyway and yet you know what. Fifteen years ago was a blue state. I mean if you go back and look over the history. Back when Clinton was elected guess what it's rocked back and forth. You know it's been -- in -- it's been -- and rent. You know. So there you -- 267866889087. A total print I'm back to propose major. Major is in Paterson has a major thanks for Conan. Well I've been -- Columbia mission at the end now. -- manager Paterson is your name. Yes up larger than Paterson Mississippi are high you know major thanks for -- I'll tell you what I've got to play about the Electoral College you know it was I its antiquated thought it was designed far but. And only better way to do it would be of a percentage of the votes get a percentage of the electoral. Now. If you if you stop to realize that -- anyone candidates give a certain state. There may want to presidential election so is it any wonder that some of the other candidates. Some of the other people don't realize it they have. Need to go -- -- Chicago that -- if they don't play you know they don't have to worry about everything else except those late night.
