In 2000, Florida, the count was initially estimated at less than 1000 votes. That spurred recounts, massive debates, the Supreme court, political dealing, and the sobering shock the USA had (has?) a poor voting process. HOWEVER December 12, 2000 after the process ran its course and Supreme court sided against Gore, Gore conceded and congratulated Bush. The next day Bush offered a conciliatory speech to try and bring the US together. Today's 3ed debate (10/19/16) when asked of Trump if he would accept the results of election it was "I will tell you at the time,” and “I will keep you in suspense,” It looks like he will loose by a big margin, but refuse to accept vote? The US education system is ranked 27th in world (average), is our political system also going down in rankings?
