User: how are electoral votes decided

Weegy: electoral college, in U.S. [ government, the body of electors that chooses the president and vice president. The Constitution, in Article 2, Section 1, provides: “Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, EQUAL to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress.” However, NO senator, representative, or officer of the U.S. government may be an elector. The electors are directed by the Constitution to vote in their respective states, and Congress is authorized to count their votes To win, a presidential candidate must have a majority in the electoral college. ...in the event that no candidate had a majority, the House of Representatives (voting by states, with one vote for each state) There is nothing in the Constitution that requires either that the electors be chosen by popular vote or that the general-ticket system be employed. Electors must be elected on the Tuesday following the first Monday in November, as required by a federal law dating from 1845 Electoral Count Act of 1887 placed the responsibility of deciding electoral disputes mainly on the states themselves. Congress now counts the votes (a mere formality) on Jan. 6 Only at the very outset did the electoral college function as planned, and there often has been widespread dissatisfaction with the institution. The outstanding objection is that it has given the nation 14 so-called minority presidents, i.e., presidents who had a majority in the electoral college but lacked it in the total national popular vote Woodrow Wilson (1912 and 1916), Harry S. Truman (1948), John F. Kennedy (1960), Richard M. Nixon (1968, but not 1972), Bill Clinton (1992 and 1996), and George W. Bush (2000) The popular-vote loss and narrow electoral-college victory of George W. Bush in 2000 again led many to question the appropriateness of the institution in a modern representative democracy. ]


User: What power does the president have over the congress?





Weegy: The President appoints the SC justices, and Congress (specifically the senate, I believe) approves the president's appointments.

Some delegates believed the President should be “nothing more than an institution for carrying the will of the legislature into effect.” Had this group had their way, the only branch that would check the powers of the executive branch today would be who?
