This Electoral College is incredibly antiquate and unfair. In Europe, the candidate that receives more votes wins. Pretty straightforward. Americans have some bold nerve preaching democracy to other nations ! We are beholden to an election process that is undemocratic, unfair, antiquated, and, once again, unreflective of the will of the majority of the people's vote. The electoral college should have been put to rest with the illegitimate Bush reign ! The majority rule is used in every other form of our government ! The delegates vote along party lines, but if one state has, for example, six Democratic Representatives and four Republican Representatives, that's how the vote goes. And of course, vice versa if there's a Republican majority. The Electoral College, however, has been corrupted so that all ten votes go to the majority party. Had the Electoral College functioned as Congress does, Hillary Clinton would have won in 2016. It's just weird to me that in a democratic election the candidate with the most votes still loses .. it's 3 million voices being ignored in this case. Electoral votes are allocated to the states each decade to reflect population shifts, but every state is guaranteed three electoral votes before allocation kicks in, leaving the least populous states with the most disproportionate number of electoral votes and improving their vote power. That’s why the five states with the most vote power have only three electoral votes. The states with the fewest people per electoral vote, and therefore the highest “vote power,” are Wyoming, Vermont, and North Dakota. In Wyoming, there are 143,000 people for each of its three electoral votes. The states with the weakest votes are New York, Florida, and California. Mob rule is a very old concept, it has nothing to do with modern democracies
The Founders created the EC because 200 years ago people were very ignorant and they didnt want scumbags like Donald Trump in charge elected by simpletons and illiterates
