I think you can be elected because you are the most electable and have the broadest appeal!
But I am just a Protestant Governor, how can I be President?
Step 1: Nominations
Step 2: Primaries In this stage, the general public narrows down the multiple same--party candidates into one victor who would run for President. The public votes for delegates who would vote for the candidate they want.
Vote for me!
Gee, I should drop out because of my financial issues and poor showings.
Step 3: National Convention In this step, the delegates meet to formally elect their party's candidate for the general election
1)naming the party’s presidential and vice-presidential candidates, (2) bring the various factions and the leading personalities in the party together in one place for a common purpose, (3) adopt the party’s platform – its formal statement of basic principles, stands on major policy matters, and objectives for the campaign and beyond.
Step 4: Campaign This is where the real fun starts. Each candidate makes tours around the states, makes advertisements, and starts rallies to gain more support.
Here is why you should vote for me....
Step 5: General Election Day This is when the people start voting for the candidate they want to be the President
I am winning!!!
Step 6: Electoral College This formally elects one winner as the President of the United States
