Who or whom?
Which is correct?
THIS IS CORRECT:
Whom do you think we should support?[whom is the object of support]
To whom do you wish to speak?[whom is following the preposition to]
According to the rules of formal grammar, who should be used in the subject position in a sentence, while whom should be used in the object position, and also after a preposition. For example:
Who made this decision?[who is the subject of the sentence]

Thank you Sara for explaining this.
Our English teachers have failed our students.
"I seen this and he done that", along with "you know" every 5th word,
plus "like", make our language pathetic.
