    There is a bare minimum of electoral votes so this is irrelevant. And if you don’t pay attention to the safe or non swing states then they might vote for the other candidate or make it much closer.

    The idea of problematic election systems is without a doubt a great problem worth conversation. My problem with his presentation of the Electoral College is that he completely ignores what the College was designed to be: a final safety net in the event of a populist revolt. Ie should a man like Trump have been elected by the popular vote, the EC could have overrruled. The EC merely did the exact opposite of what it was meant to do.

    Keep in mind that this video is extremely partisan, and doesn't always tell the whole truth (for example, yes, there have been 80 "turncoats" in the electoral college, but that accounts for less than 1% of electors, and they have never influenced an election). It gives good points on why the electoral college should be abolished, but it's definitely not an obvious choice; do some extra research on youtube.

    America is not a true democracy it's a constitutional republic which is why the founding fathers created it. If it were a true democracy there would be no need for a electoral college because there would be no need for a president or a Congress . The people would directly vote and make new laws and we would not vote for people represent us in making and passing laws. Just thought I would point that out because Adam called it undemocratic (TLDR) but we are not a democracy but a constitutional republic which is why the founding fathers created the electoral college

    If you don’t understand how Trump could win before Nov. 8th, I totally understand you.
    If you still don’t understand how Trump won now, you have a serious arrogance and ignorance problem.
    I would assume you, the reader to this answer, live in a urban area in either Northeast or the West Coast, college educated, a typical left-wing supporter and advocator for your entire life.
    That’s nice. You work in the office with HVAC on 24/7/365. You go to gym after work, watching news from CNN or NBC on the treadmill. Then you eat your dinner out somewhere with a friend, probably not cooking at home. Sometimes you fly between NYC/Boston and LA/SFO for business. When you look down from the plane window and see those endless farmlands and mountains in the midwest, you are thinking “I can’t imagine living a life down there.”
    When you saw Trump won, you were shocked. Holy shit! There’s not a single person around me who supports Trump, how could he win?
    That’s where the problem is. You are living in a completely different world than those Trump supporters.
    When you refuel your car, have you ever wondered where the gas comes from, if not imported? Who drilled the oil for you?
    When you charge your phone, have you ever wondered where the electricity comes from? Who dug the coal to power the plant?
    When you shop in the supermarket, have you ever wondered where the fresh vegetables and fruits come from? Who drove the truck all the way from California to New York to deliver those goods?
    Those are the people who support Donald Trump. Have you ever talked to any one of them?
    Without you, they can still feed themselves, but without them, you will be starved to death. You don’t know how to grow crops, and you dare not to kill a chicken.
    So now how could you despise them as “uneducated redneck racists”?
    When they watch the news, even when watching Fox News, the camera is always on the big cities far away from them. They are ignored, as if they don’t exist in this country. No one pays attention to them, and no one speaks for them, until Donald Trump.
    They could drive a truck for $8k a month 20 years ago working 60 hours a week, but now the illegal immigrants are willing to do it at $3k. They lost their jobs.
    They could work in a factory for $4k a month 20 years ago, but now the job goes to China and Mexico when the workers there make $500 a month. They lost their jobs.
    You can’t urge a 40-year-old man with a high school diploma having a family to raise to go to college again and learn programming or investment banking. He can’t and he can’t afford.
    You also can’t say in 10 years robots are doing the job for them and they should just vanish because their minds and skills don’t follow the era.
    They are human beings. They are also lovely nice people. They don’t hate you. They work hard so you can live a comfortable life. Why do you hate them? Why do you label them as racist deplorables and xenophobic bigots without even knowing how hard their lives are?
    When they are losing jobs and falling into poverty, they don’t know what to do. They stay at home and turn on the TV and see Obama and Hillary speaking on ABC News: “The biggest problem our society now facing is climate change.”
    They may voted for Obama 8 years ago and hoped him to bring change to their life, but they could only sigh when they see this. So they switch to Fox News and see Donald Trump speaking on his rally in Detroit, MI: “We need to rebuild our inner cities, we need to bring jobs back.” They follow him and say: “YES! Let’s make America great again!”
    When they saw Obama visiting NYC after hurricane Sandy in 2012, but was playing golf when the devastating flood in Louisiana destroyed thousands of homes this summer, they knew they were forgotten.
    However, when they saw Trump visiting Louisiana after the flood, a state that he didn’t need to campaign at all, they knew someone actually cared for them.
    If you are them, who will you vote for?
    They are the silent majorities. They live in your flyover states. They don’t care about LGBT or BLM. They are not racist or homophobic. They just want jobs to feed their families.
    Please throw away your arrogance and start to care about those people. They are Americans too. They might be more American than you are, since many of your clients and customers are foreign.
    They have no methods to let you hear them. All the medias don’t speak for them, all the celebrities don’t pay attention to them. All the career politicians don’t represent them. The only weapon they have are their ballots. They vote to knock you out of your utopia. That’s the power of democracy. That’s why democracy is great. It never ignores anyone.
    If you believe your value is progressive and right, you need to help them getting out of their trouble first. You can’t blame and mock them. It will only push them away from you even more.
    Trump has been a democrat longer than republican in his life. He has married 3 times, agrees with progressive income tax, has been pro-choice in most of his life and pro-LGBT all the time. The only hardcore conservative thing I can think of him is anti-alcohol. However, he could still defeat 16 truly conservative republican candidates and won more votes in the primaries than anyone else in the history. This has already proven that the silent majorities are much more tolerant now on social issues. They just want someone to fix the economy for them.
    Now it’s your chance to work with them, help them under the 4 years of Trump’s presidency. Stop protesting and introspect yourself. Isn’t your arrogance and ignorance that brought Trump to the White House?

    Why should we get rid of the electoral college? The majority of the time it's lead to a peaceful exchange of power. With the exception of that little debacle during the election of 1860, every presidential election has ended in a peaceful exchange or some sort of compromise between the parties. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

  • Mario Fatovic
    Mario Fatovic Month ago

    I'll ignore the pointless debate about whether or not the US is or isn't a democracy, let's get into this instead.
    California has a population of about 40,000,000 and Wyoming has a population of less that 600,000 and that means Californias population is more than 60 times that of Wyoming. That means they would never be heard in a "mob rules" kind of society. Think about this, California is about 14% of the population in the US, that would mean you would have to get California, New York (20 mil), Texas (27 mil) and Florida (20 mil) and you have well over 100 million. THAT'S 4 STATES and you'd have basically a third of the population, when about half the country doesn't vote. That'd let less than a dozen states have the say in who runs the country, while the rest would be ignored.
    Also, 3 million Texans out of 27 million voted democrat, and 5 million Californians voted Republican out of 40 million? That's not very purple, that's very red and blue, that's very deceptive because they're high numbers, but when you add context like that it's only 1/8 of Californian, changes your view.
    Also, also, swing states change.

    I hate to break it to you all. But Abraham Lincoln won because of the electoral college and would have lost to a pro-slavery Democrat if it was based on the popular vote. Thank goodness we live in a constitutional republic and not a democracy.

      wolfmancal the wolf Your call. Good luck with life.

    • Tempting Fate
      Tempting Fate Month ago

      wolfmancal the wolf to your points:
      1. Yes I watched the video and Adam is completely wrong about swing states. First and foremost they change every election, they are not set. They are the states polls say are most up for grabs by either candidate because the population is center. Not to far right or left. You didn't see Hillary campaigning in California. Not because they weren't important but because they were already in the bag. Trump didn't spend any time there either because he didn't have a chance. California voted for who their people wanted. The campaign trail focuses on undecided states. "Swing states." Adam is literally complicating a very simple situation just to make it appear "undemocratic." There are plenty of vids on YT that debunk this.
      2. Republic does not mean Democratic. Yes, most republics are democratic but a republic is simply where the power of the country resides with the people through a chosen representative. Democracy can have nothing to do with it. You could vote in a life long king in any style you wanted and it could still be a Republic. It's how North Korea gets away with calling itself one. A democracy is were the majority have complete power. Which is never so great for the little guy.
      Changing the electoral college would not make us a pure democracy, you are right. But going to a popular vote would. I'm suprised you don't get that.
      3. Not ETHNIC or cultural minorities!? The minority. As in... "the anti-slavery crowd before the Civil War were in the minority." The pro-slavery crowd were the majority. So if we go to a popular vote and the majority of the country is Liberal, then Conservative viewpoints would never have a say. They are silenced. That pisses conservative states off and they leave the United states. Which they can do, called succession. It's another civil war. Good news is this helped the left when they were the minority a few decades ago because they were never silenced. And it allowed them to grow. It goes back and forth. The system is designed to be flexible. A popular vote is not flexible and eradicates a check and balance that keep us united.
      4. Again you make the point that ending the electoral college wouldn't make us a pure democracy, which has failed time and time again because it's always been used to silence the minority by the majority. But then go to say you want to institute the very definition of a pure democracy with a popular vote. Our system, as flawed as it can be, is completely designed to be temporary and ever changing. Flexible. Things like term limits were to insure we never get stuck in one pattern for too long. Same with not having a popular vote.

      wolfmancal the wolf I'll take that as a yes. And I'm asking because your responses were typical of someone who has only the most fundamental education in civics, which isn't bad so long as your open to learning. I'm going to respond accordingly. One sec...

      wolfmancal the wolf legitimate question... are you still in highschool?

    • Tempting Fate
      Tempting Fate Month ago

      wolfmancal the wolf no, I'm a fan of the electoral college because it tries to equalize the power of the state's during elections while still allowing for the states with the larger populations to hold more sway. It's a compromise which allowed the US to be created, since we are a Republic of independent States. If we allow a popular vote only, then the majority will always squash the minority. It's why we don't live in a democracy but a representative republic.
      Pure democracy is mob rule. That kind of thinking led to the Jim Crow laws, discrimination of the LGBQT community, and many other atrocities in history. Any time a pure democracy has been tried it led to the minority being disenfranchised and led to violent conflict.
      It wasn't created this way on a whim and any student of history knows the flaws of a pure democracy. Sad that few are knowledgeable and are pushing for a failed experiment that will fail again. "Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it." - Winston Churchill.

      I Ya Month ago

      I love when people say "We're a republic, not a democracy!" First of all, A republic IS a democracy. Democracy is an overarching term that engulfs all sorts of ideology. When people talk about how democratic we are or how we're a democratic nation, they don't mean that we are a direct democracy. Claiming they are is disingenuous.

      The moving from FPTP to representative voting does not change the system. We would still be a Republic since it would still be us electing officials rather than directly voting on policy. The only difference is that representative voting not only encourages people to get involved with the democratic process (Or if you want to be a pedantic nerd, republican process, literally the exact same thing), but it more fits the views of America as a whole rather than the slight majority in a state.

      This would not only allow third parties to rise to prominence and cut down on the two larger parties and allowing more personalized ideology rather than just blue and red, but it would also help those who have differing ideology in their state be able to make a difference. California has more red voters than entire red states. If they were counted Republicans would do a lot better. Same for blue voters in red states.

Secondly, old white guys wordsmithed the Bill of Rights added the electoral college because of past failures of pure democracies throughout history (Greece and their city states).

      @I YaHowever I did a little more research and found that america is still a republic BUT we have some (like 1 or 2) properties of a democracy. Creating a whole new thing. And that is what america is a nation with no specific culture but its own. So lets just sit down and say that america is great the way it is. Please.

    “America is one of the most hypocritical countries of the world, its self-perception based on lies and myths, the biggest myth about America is the thesis that it's a Democracy. Bullshit, de facto America is not a Democracy; it's an Oligarchy. Freedom of speech & expression does not exist, except if one thinks that shit written on Constitution is not a joke fabricated by Americans.”

    Of course it's unfair, because big cities have more people who want the better interest of the cities, and they are in bigger states, and smaller states want the better of the farmers and such, the smaller states, this was designed to give both political orientations equal opportunity, and the USA isn't a democracy, it's a republic.

    There are 27.7 million Texans with only about 9 million under the age of 18 meaning that the voting population is about 18.7 million. So while 3 million may have voted democratic, the leaves 15.7 million voting republic (with a smaller fraction voting third party). That was a misleading fact at 2:15
