Concerned Citizen: The American electoral system clearly possesses deep flaws and must be discarded in favor of a more fair and just system. In several recent elections, candidates who were leading in pre-election polls failed to win election to office.
The suggestion that the American electoral system must be discarded most strongly depends on which of the following assumptions?
A. The candidate leading in pre-election polls won a majority of the popular vote in the actual election yet still failed to be elected.
B. The voting population did not significantly alter its feelings on which candidate was preferred during the time interval between the pre-election polls and the actual election.
C. The candidate winning the election consistently spent more money than the candidate who was leading in pre-election polls but failed to actually win.
D. The candidate who actually won office typically relied on a strongly negative campaign strategy and attacked his or her opponent's personal credibility in the final days before the election.
E. The elections in question were for major national or state offices and received considerable media coverage.
