Have to get rid of the Electoral College for a Republican to ever win the Presidency again.
That may be true but I don't think we should get rid of the Electoral College.
This is normally a suggestion by the party the recently lost an election.
In 2000 and 2004 it was the democrats wanting to rid the nation of the EC and Republicans who stood behind it.
Without the EC, New York City and Los Angeles would be picking our President.
That's just my opinion.
Without the Electoral College system, which thankfully is one part of the Constitution that still survives, the election would be fought solely in a few large metro areas, which means even a more leftward drift in national politics.
With the Electoral College and the party alignment as it stands today, each candidate had about equal numbers of electoral votes conceded to the other. The relatively few states not included in those categories were the battleground states which either candidate could have won and both targeted. Neither party at present has a lock on the Electoral College majority, but massive cheating by one side turns a fair contest into a fix. It's not a problem of the Electoral College, it's the fault of the sleaziness and criminality of the 'Rats, as this thread demonstrates.
