PostAbolish the Electoral College? (Massoud Malek, USA, 11/25/16 12:17 pm)
After Hillary Clinton won the popular vote but lost the election, some are calling on 149 Electors to ignore their states' votes and cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton. Some are also talking about abolishing the Electoral College and ignoring the will of millions of Americans.
By abolishing the Electoral College, presidential candidates would never bother to step foot in 28 states with populations less than five million and would only campaign in California, Texas, New York, Florida, and a few other states. There are 14 states with less than two million people and less than one million registered voters. Should these people bother to vote, knowing well that their votes would not count?
JE comments: There's always the difference between whether your vote counts (it does) or whether it matters. I'm not sure whether Massoud Malek advocates getting rid of the Electoral College, or keeping it. Either way, the discussion is purely theoretical, as it won't happen.
