There has been a flood of questions about the electoral college since AFTER we knew the result of the 2016 presidential election. I don't get it, I really don't. It's not hard to understand. And I'm not American.
If the House of Representatives were elected by the Single Transferable Vote, I could understand questions about that. STV is enough to give anyone a thumping migraine, never mind a headache. But we're not talking about that level of complexity.
Surely the reason for the electoral college must have been covered in history class? If it wasn't, why, or is American education really that bad?
