Best Answer

Yes the president is elected by the voters of the U.S.

Actually... no, the president is not elected by voters.

The President is Elected by the Electoral Votes from each state...

the voters don't really have a say. Our Jeffersonian democracy

is designed to protect the rights of slaveowning landholders.

The Electoral college still exists today. There is no democracy in America.

Note: Even when a president is elected, the President and VP have no real power.

Since the Reagan administration, the National Security Council has veto power over our president and his VP. These nonelected economic appointees are the real power in America. They select and enforce our domestic and foreign agendas.
