All I ask is that you recognize that if you live in one of the aforementioned states, and if you are reading this, your vote for either Clinton or Trump will make zero difference.And with that in mind, I’d like to make one final pitch to those voters: make that vote count.You Tuber Evan Puschak, who goes by the handle “The Nerd Writer”, has posted a new video in which he examines Donald Trump’s unique linguistic style to see what it may tell us about his meteoric rise in the Republican primary.Puschak breaks down an answer Trump recently gave to late night host Jimmy Kimmel about his call to ban all Muslims from entering the US.But before you do, I’d like to make one last point. Now before you tear me to shreds, let me preface that a bit. C, Maryland, Vermont, Hawaii, California, New York, Washington, Connecticut, New Jersey, Illinois, Delaware, Rhode Island, or Oregon, the winner-take-all system means Hillary Clinton has all but won every electoral vote in your state.Your vote for Trump will not matter, and if you’re reading this, your vote for Clinton probably won’t matter either.Your ballot is long, and there are key races at the state and national level, not to mention hotly contested ballot initiatives, where your vote could truly count.I wholeheartedly encourage you to go to the polls, and fill out your ballot.
You may even prefer Clinton, or Trump, to any of the third-party candidates in the race, but if you live in one of the aforementioned states where your vote won’t make a difference, it really doesn’t matter. Which is much more than your worthless vote for Clinton or Trump can do.

I know what you’re thinking: “if everyone thought like that, my vote would matter.” True.
But I don’t have influence over “everyone,” and as much as I’d like “everyone” to read this, The Harvard Law Record’s modest readership has yet to approach the cusp of “everyone.” Last year, our most-read post had just over 97,000 views.
A careful examination of Trump’s answer shows that Trump repeats a lot (like a good salesman), uses his favorite words over and over (“tremendous”, anyone? And if you are an American citizen who for years has listened to politicians sound sophisticated while accomplishing nothing you might just be primed for something that is everything they are not.
