    If we didn’t have electoral college the presidents would spend their time in the most populated states and they would leave the smaller states in the dust and they would only need to win most of the vote in these states and if they did do so the other candidates would have a hard time trying to get enough of the rest of the states votes so that they even have a chance to tie or even get close and while they are doing that the other candidate would be picking up more less populated states which would leave the entire election just basically a race for California

    Thank God we don't live in a Democracy. Imagine if we went back to the Civil War times and held a Vote to end slavery? Or in the 60's if we held a vote to see if Blacks ought to be equal to whites. Or if we held a vote to see if people thought Gays ought to be married. Systems like represenitive voting and the electoral college prevent the tyranny of the mob.

    What probably would make electoral college a better more representative system is if they ditched the battle ground states like Florida or at least not give them so much power in an election & gave the smaller rural states more & equal electoral members to compete with bigger more populated states that way the smaller states aren't always superseding the bigger states every election & every state gets fair & equal representation. Also they would need to make a presidential candidate campaign in all 50 states to keep things fair & give all voters a chance electoral or not. The electoral college system could still work but its still based on an antiquated system from around the 18th & 19th century back when slavery was a thing in America. It’s probably time to update it so it works for everyone in the 21st century not just a handful of rural states. Just my theory on a better election system if electoral college has to exist.

    If you run for governor or a state congress seat you don't points for certain districts in your state. You win if you get the highest number of votes. It shouldn't be any different in a Presidential election. Also, something to ponder. If we went off of popular vote, no Bush Jr. which means no debacle in Iraq and Afghanistan and we wouldn't have a geriatric toddler in the WH right now.

    Propaganda, it's a republic and republics are designed with the electoral college to make elections fair and prevent states with higher populations from gaining to much influence and for a very specific reason, these places a far more likely to have rampant corruption. It's a lot like crypto currency, the way it is designed is almost uncorruptable until more than 50% of the processing power involved is controlled by one person. A good example of this, most bitcoin miners operate in groups. One of these groups actually accumulated more than 50% of the processing power, but luckily they voluntarily disbanded enough members to other groups because they knew this could put the system at risk and could hurt trust of the system. Our forefathers were geniuses in designing the government!

    Without the electoral college, New York and California would choose everything.

    Socrates was right, the masses are too stupid to self govern. The fact a drug addicted bum has the same political weight as an educated person with a job is pretty stupid.
    Also in places like WA, wealthy California millionaires pay poor voters to vote for things like i1639 to over ride the will of the people.

    Electoral college speaks for the places who have lower populations. How would people living in Los Angeles county know what the needs are for the people who live in Wyoming? Or twenty some other states whose population combination is less than Los Angeles county.

    This is so true. The density of Cuban Americans in Florida has allowed the Electoral Votes there to have more power than they should. Hence the Republicans get the most electoral votes from Florida because they have a hard line, intolerant view of Cuba, and so the people of Cuba suffer.

    If it weren’t for the electoral college, the outcome of each election would be determined by California and New York. There’s a reason the system is implemented. To give less populous states a voice. The only reason this pops up is because people don’t like the outcome of elections

    God damn none of you actually have read the fecking constitution, it was NEVER supposed to be a direct democracy, meaning, the electoral college makes it indirect democracy, which is what the founders wanted. And no, the electoral college doesn’t make votes from California worth less than votes from Alaska. This is fake news that is just here be cause Hillary supposedly one the majority vote but because trump got more electoral college got more votes he one, no. It just means that the more and more the population grows, the less and less your vote will influence the election. You progressives never look at the full picture.

      That's like saying the US isn't a republic because it's capitalist.

      +Pillsburry dough the Point is that being a republic has absolutely nothing to do with the electoral system
      France is a republic. Germany is a republic
      China is a republic
      "Republic" isn't even defined precisely.
      So being a republic has nothing to do with a democracy. The US (like France and Germany) is both.

    Well almost every european knows how bad your election system is. It mimics in some form the english system. In both systems one party wins a "state" and all their votes. That leads to systems with mostly just 2 partys, which limits your choices. Other systems have just give votes to a party percentual, which makes way more sense, cause no votes get lost. Everyone votes for a party and their vote matters. The only problem is, you might end up with a parlament with a really hugh amount of partys some just having 1% of the country behind them. Thats why i believe the german system is quite good. There you have two choices. One going directly to a party and another for a middle men taking your districts point of view in the parlament. And a party has to get atleast 5% of the first votes to get in the parlament, so there aren't a lot of small parties around (6 atm). But you have a a more choices then just konservativ and liberal.

    Yes, but the president is the head of the whole country, not just California, New York, and maybe Florida if they can actually go an entire election cycle without botching their vote counting. The Electoral college gives smaller states a slightly larger voice so they aren't overrun by bigger states like California. If that bothers voters in those states, move to less populous states where your vote counts for more. Not you California, we want you to stay put until after Trump builds a wall around you. We don't want the crazy spreading to other states.

      You people who say “we are a republic, not a democracy.” deserve a fucking bullet to the head. Republic does not exclude democracy. The two aren't mutually exclusive or even directly related. France, India, Italy, Ireland are all republics but they have a parliamentary system whereas the United States uses a presidential system. Republics were created in response to monarchy, not democracy. Democracy is the reason people in Congress are there. We are a democratic republic. We elect people, so we’re a democracy and they represent us so we’re a republic. In our western democracy, we have elections between multiple distinct political parties, a separation of powers into different branches of government, the rule of law in everyday life as part of an open society, a market economy with private property, and the equal protection of human rights, civil rights, civil liberties and political freedoms for all people. To define the system in practice, liberal democracies often draw upon a constitution. A republic is just another form of liberal democracy. I don’t know if these conservatives/libertarians who still say “we are a republic, not a democracy” failed government class because no human being can be this fucking dumb.
