The Electoral Collage is the worst of all possible systems…except for all the others!
(I don’t like much of anything about it, but I think it behooves us to be careful what we ask for when proposing an alternative. We might get it and end up not liking it.)
True, but we already have a system we don’t like, so what’s the difference? We’ve elected presidents through the electoral college for 236 years, so far. Why not trade it for a majority of the popular vote for the next 236 years, then we could revisit? Fair’s fair.
I would not oppose such a change. I think that it would lead to great changes as to how presidential eletion campaigns proceed. However, it seems to me to be a moot point, since the change would require a Constitutional amendment which requires 3/4 of the States to agee to pass. (Such a system would be percieved as less advantageous, than the current one, I think, for more than 1/4 of the States.)
