Given the topics and the debate we are faced with in this election year and understanding the political system the US has, what would be the outcome if everyone boycotted the polls this year and elected no candidate for president?
The electoral college would vote as they always do. Americans vote for electors who then vote for the president.
It would mean a Republican landslide. And no, I am neither a Democrat nor an American.
The Writers Dog, I am curious as to why you say this. The intent would be that the American citizen has found discord with the incumbent and the opposing party's candidate. As a way to show their disapproval of both, a "revolution" takes place in the form of the boycott at the poll, where no vote is cast for either representative. The question/discussion is based around the constitutional structure in place to provide an official to sit as President of the US.
