Time to get rid of the Electoral College:
Myths About Big Cities
If the left wants elections decided by majority rules so bad let’s elect the President by who wins the most states.
So with a minority of the popular vote again? No, dumbass.
So in other words you want an election process you know will favor the Democrats which we all know a straight popular vote would do just like the majority state vote would favor Republicans. You on the left aren’t fooling anyone about why you really want to end the electoral college.
Electoral College is FAR MORE mathematically democratic than the Senate. See if you can change that first -- OK?? There's valid reasons for equality of States.. Just as in the equality of voters WITHIN those states.
Good luck convincing the people of 38 states needed to amend the Constitution. If we get rid of the EC only 4 to 5 out of 50 states will decide who becomes president.
Perfect plan for leftist domination. Get rid of Electoral College. Flood the Bluest states with Millions of new illegal voters on the rolls and don't enforce the Fed Election law..
You folks desperate enough to bribe foreign mercenaries to fight your fights?
That is a straw man argument. It’s not about the cities, it’s about the 50 United States. There were several factors why our founders preferred the electoral system. One factor- electoral college was a compromise made by the largely populated states to the smaller states in order to appease the concern from the small states about being controlled by the voters in other states.
Here is a link which will help the OP understand what the founders were thinking. Read it, and burn your straw man while you’re at it.
The current use of the electoral college bears no resemblance to what the founders set up,
The flaw in the current use of the electoral college is that almost all the states award all the electoral votes to the winning candidate, no matter how small a margin he or she won the state by.
