  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Analysis: Which world leaders will miss Trump if he goes?” – below is their description.

    Joe Biden has taken the lead over Donald Trump in the key state of Georgia, now leading the president by just over 900 votes. Joe Biden needs only one of the four states still to declare. Of these, only Pennsylvania is leaning towards Donald Trump, and its 20 Electoral College votes alone would not get the president over the line. FRANCE 24’s international affairs editor Philip Turle, says many world leaders will miss the president if he is beaten, including Russian leader Vladimir Putin, Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu, and the leader of the hermetic nuclear state of North Korea, Kim Jong-un.

  • In This Story: Electoral College

    The United States Electoral College is the group of presidential electors required by the Constitution to form every four years for the sole purpose of electing the president and vice president. Each state appoints electors equal in number to its congressional delegation. Federal office holders cannot be electors.

    Of the current 538 electors, an absolute majority of 270 or more electoral votes is required to elect the president and vice president. If no candidate achieves an absolute majority there, a contingent election is held by the United States House of Representatives to elect the president, and by the United States Senate to elect the vice president.

    The appropriateness of the Electoral College system is a matter of ongoing debate. Supporters argue that it is a fundamental component of American federalism by preserving the Constitutional role of the states in presidential elections. Candidates must appeal to a broad and diverse set of states rather than focusing only on the few U.S. cities with the highest population densities.

    Critics argue that the Electoral College system is less democratic than a direct popular vote and that the College violates the democratic principle of “one person, one vote.” Thus, a president may be elected who did not win the national popular vote, as occurred in 1824, 1876, 1888, 2000, and 2016.
