and gerrymandering and insider trading in congress and lifetime appointments to the courts. The entire system is broken.
It was needed when it would take days or weeks to count the ballots in the most rural areas... not necessary now
now that is a good idea.
Liberals hate the electoral college when it doesn’t benefit them.
They’ll regret when they can’t use it for there own mecheavelian success later down the line.
I call liberals maxheavelians simply because Martin Luther King & Malcom X warned me about there antics & I steered clear from them
I would love if all votes counted the same. But if that happened the candidates would only need to visit and appease the most populous cities in the nation. They wouldnt have to visit areas that dont have big crowds because they will already have reached the theshold for the majority. It will never work. Its a sad truth.
The only hope for our country is to get rid of the Electoral College, a crooked scam from the start!
Small states would still have a massively disproportionate representation in the legislative branch.
Should have died in 1900
I love the electoral college. It's free college tell Bernie
Just think about it people, Gore won the popular vote, and if he was president 9/11 probably wouldn't have happened, we wouldn't have been in two wars, our economy wouldn't have crashed, and we wouldn't have this mentally ill man in office
What doesn't work for me as far as the Electoral College is that the first candidate that reaches a certain number of votes wins.
We start on the east coast and by the time you get to the midwest a candidate may have already won the election without even considering the west coast!
No. Not really. Bad idea.

What we need to make things fair is an electoral college tax. Where your federal tax rate is directly affected by how powerful your vote is. I mean how fair is it that a guy in Montana get 3x the voting power when I'm paying the same in taxes.
Look who's talking about this Democrats always want to move the goalposts. When they lose an election. it will never happen you need a constitutional convention to make this happen.
You hate the electorial college because it does what its supposed to do. No mob rule!!!
Won't happen. Try and get jail time. Go for it.
The public at large are pretty clueless. We don't have a democracy, we have a republic; representative form of government. Since the public at large is not well educated, not well informed that's why referenda is the worst way to develop policy. Look at England and BREXIT. That's what happens when you rely on the public for important decisions.
Short sighted. No it wasn't to preserve slavery. It may be outdated however, it's usually not an issue. The vast majority of elections the EC winner also wins the popular vote. The inter state compact would have made Hillary the EC winner in 16 if only 5 states had it in place. The only reason candidates visit small populated areas is because of the electoral college. If we do get rid of it we'd need to address that. The focus and fight isn't worth it. There are bigger things going on and state legislatures are making the EC less of a factor anyway
