However, a point of controversy is the way the ballots are cast. States such as California and Texas can have a high number of ballots - 55 and 38, respectively - but the 'weight' of each citizen's ballot is theoretically smaller than that of those voting in Wyoming, for example, when compared to the number of citizens living there. Around 700,000 Californians share one electoral college vote, compared to only 200,000 Wyomingites, lending some estimates to this.

The results of the U.S. election depends not on the actual amount of votes each candidate gets, but rather on how these convert into the votes assigned to each state by the electoral college. For starters, if the Republican nominee were to achieve the greatest share of the popular vote in Florida, they would receive 29 votes from the electoral college against their ultimate target of achieving the 270 victory threshold.
