Wouldn't it be better if our voting system was the popular vote. We need to get rid of the electoral vote. It doesn't represent all who vote?
Hillary won the popular vote by 3 million votes. She was the winner. The electoral vote was manipulated by Trump and his Republicans, making certain he would win. The 3 million who voted were not represented.

I believe it would be better. Simple fact of the matter is, we have multiple people competing for the same job, someone is always going to lose. I strongly believe it should never be the person with the most votes. 1 citizen, 1vote, it is good enough for every other office, it should be good enough for the top job.

If we used your stupid idea,no votes in less populated states will ever count for anything.The POTUS would be elected by the 5 most populous states which are all liberal run shytholes,and that is the only reason you like the idea at all.

YOU really need to get educated on how the system works.. IF not for the electoral only the big 5 cities and 5 states would be the ones deciding who wins..

This is true, but the electoral system strengthens the rights, power, and individuality of each state. Diffusing governmental power and avoiding Washington DC having all the power, is a good idea. It avoids fascism and dictatorship.

No it wouldn't. The point is to protect state rights.

when you get to high school, be sure to pay close attention in freshman civics when they should explain the significance of the electoral system to you....

No it wouldn't be better. NY and Calif. would control the Presidency every election. Other states would no longer have a say and it would cause them to leave the Union. The Founders implemented the Electoral College for that reason. Democrats only want to do this so they have total control. Everything Democrats do and suggest is about power and control.
Stop electing Democrats.

I disagree. It was put in place for good reasons and has served us well for over 200 years. You are just unhappy because your candidate lost.

Sure it does. And you hate the fact that it does represent all Americans.
