    At this point the title's kind of an "oops," but the book looks interesting, and the point is not invalidated by the specific prediction not coming to pass.

    “Doc” Everett E. Murdock’s book, “OBAMA WON BUT ROMNEY ALMOST WAS PRESIDENT – How the Democrats Targeted Electoral College Votes to Win the 2012 Presidential Election” is a book I am going to read over and over again. How many times have we heard discussions and arguments about the Electoral College on television we didn't quite understand? How many times have we heard that the Electoral College is more important than the popular vote in the election of American presidents? How was it that in th “Doc” Everett E. Murdock’s book, “OBAMA WON BUT ROMNEY ALMOST WAS PRESIDENT – How the Democrats Targeted Electoral College Votes to Win the 2012 Presidential Election” is a book I am going to read over and over again. How many times have we heard discussions and arguments about the Electoral College on television we didn't quite understand? How many times have we heard that the Electoral College is more important than the popular vote in the election of American presidents? How was it that in the presidential election of 2000 Al Gore lost to George Bush even though he had won the general election by 543,895 votes? Dr. Murdock's book provides answers to these questions and clarifies so much of what is confusing about the Electoral College. The Professor’s writing style is easy on the eyes. This ever so palatable tome can help the reader become an expert on the Electoral College—and along with that—learn or relearn the history of the beginning of the American Union and how slavery impacted its initial formation. It will help the reader understand how smaller states with smaller populations can determine the winner in a Presidential election. And to add some cherries to the ice cream the reader can pick up some really cool unknown facts about American political history going all the way back to George Washington’s election. Here are some samples: • For a period of time the position of Secretary of State in the Federal government was the actual stepping-stone to the Presidency • The two opposing political parties were the Federalist Party and the Democratic-Republican Party--yes that’s one party, the Democratic-Republican Party. • Andrew Jackson, notorious “Indian killer” and scrapper became the founder of today’s Democratic Party when he broke away from the Democratic-Republican Party to champion to the cause of expanding voting rights to non-propertied white men.
