The majority of delegates ll elect the president A Constitutional Republic is a form of democracy , representative or indirect democracy .. It's time to abolish the electoral college and honor the will of the people. Proportional representation characterizes electoral systems by which divisions in an electorate are reflected proportionately in the elected body. Representative democracies now are encountering big challenges since their representatives cannot represent the entire population . How can we fix representative democracy? ,, Why should everybody else be drowned out by the panhandle of Florida or rural Ohio or even the city of Durham in North Carolina? It's a bad system, is proportional the way to go, who knows? The electoral college's role, as stated by Alexander Hamilton: "To afford a moral clarity that the office of the president shall never fall to the lot of any man who is not, in an eminent degree, endowed with the requisite qualifications." The College has been waiting in the background some 250 years, precisely for this.She wasn't the "peoples" choice. She was California and New York's choice and they don't get to rule the entire country like joint czars of the east and west. I didn't vote for him either, but get over it, make the most of the next 4 years and nominate a winner next time.
