Do we need it anymore? Gallup polls have show than the American people prefer Direct Elections for President over the indirect Electoral College. It used to be necessary, back when we couldn't talk to each other by picking up a phone and we didn't have nationwide 24/7 news coverage. California just became the latest state to vote to give all their electoral votes to the candidate that wins the popular vote, joining seven other states that have done so. Is this the beginning of the end for the EC?
