US Politics: Why the electoral map spells trouble for Romney

Things aren't looking great as regards Romneys' chances of being elected President

The US voting system is different to the UK's and for that reason, we may well get the slightly odd scenario of Mitt Romney getting the most votes across the board, yet not being elected president. A scenario we already saw a decade ago when George Bush beat Al Gore because the former won the key state of Florida, says Paul Krishnamurty.

"In 2000, Al Gore won the popular vote yet lost overall after the Supreme Court controversially ruled that George W Bush had won the key swing state of Florida."
