Why Americans Should Not Abolish The Electoral College

For more than two centuries the Electoral College has encouraged coalition building, given a voice to both big and small states, and discouraged voter fraud.

The American Founders so deeply feared a tyranny of the majority that they rejected the idea of a direct vote for President. That’s why they created the Electoral College. For more than two centuries it has encouraged coalition building, given a voice to both big and small states, and discouraged voter fraud.

It’s called the National Popular Vote, and it would turn our presidential elections into a majority-rule affair. Would this be good or bad? Author, lawyer, and Electoral College expert Tara Ross explains.
