I expect things to get a bit more closer, but I see a Bench victory. I also forsee that tomorrow afternoon that the DK camp starts to recruit voters.

But I don't really support ima as the idea that voting a president in to abolish the presidency doesn't make sense when you can just vote for no one to be president. And DKs platform isn't good. So I'm indifferent, and don't feel like supporting anyone, thus abstaining

Yeah. I think Harder's thread might have the win sealed, but we will see.

That belongs in Wylted's thread.

Wtf Wylted dropped out three months ago. How have three people voted for him so far (although one was DQed because it wasn't bolded)?
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

I'm just joking. In all seriousness though, I don't understand why people are randomly voting Wylted.

What happens if the president-elect doesn't accept the nomination? We hold re-elections?

This is a bit more complicated than what is just being asked at face value. I do not want to sway the results of this election in any way, and therefore I'm reluctant to answer it to any degree. Suffice it to say, we'll cross that bridge when we get there.
