I am tired of hearing this mantra every four years.
The GOP is not going to change and Conservatives are not going to take it over.
After having a conversation with a friend today is it time to replace the Electoral College with direct election of the President?
It is certainly worth thinking about with states like California and New York that are consistently Blue at least then your vote would really have weight.

And we’ll see a whole new level of ballot stuffing.

It’s probably easier to change the republican primary process than to change the constitution & the electoral college system.

Kalifornia should not have 55 electorial college votes. That is simply insane. People have been leaving the state for 20 years. They must be counting every single illegal to maintain that kind of number.

Obozo would have still won with a “direct election”...simpler method is to do away with winner-take-all electoral votes for the state. Let each electoral district be counted splitting the state vote.

Go back to DU troll.

This would destroy the union as the phantom ballots in Cleveland and Miami and Philly would rule the country.
