With the 2020 presidential election winding down, I was just wondering, does anyone else think the electoral college is a really stupid way to run an election. Seriously it makes no sense. The only way it would make sense is if ALL states got exactly the same amount of electoral votes. As recent elections have shown it is possible to win the election for president if you get more electoral votes, even if you did not get the most popular votes. When your states votes go to the man with the most votes in your state it is basically saying your vote meant nothing if you did not vote for that person. What ever happened to one man one vote concept? When the electoral college puts people in office THAT WERE NOT the ones most of the people wanted in office, how is that democracy. I was taught democracy was a government of the people by the people and for the people, but the electoral college over rides that, because it is not the will of the people that is putting the president into office. It is an archaic concept that may have worked long ago , but has become obsolete today and should be done away with now. The popular vote should put the president in office,because it is the will of the people.
