Yes, and it provided many good reasons why the Electoral College is flawed. 

And it provided many good reasons why the Electoral College is good but...

It didn't show anything that would be better and that's the point!  And neither have you! :D

One of the reasons shown not to change it was "it's hard to change it". That's not a reason. 

First of all, we need to give small states less votes. It doesn't necessarily need to be purely population based, but the +2 skews it pretty hard. 

Second, the "points" you get from each state shouldn't be winner take all. If Cali is 51% D and 49% R how does it make any sense that R gets 0 points for that? State points should be based around the % of the vote you got in that state. 

 

Both of those changes would help make votes more equal across the country and help make all of the votes matter more.

Nope wouldn't work...What about a third or fourth party?

woody doesn't understand anything, much less anything that doesn't give the left an advantage.

if Pres Trump had won the popular vote too, they would have attacked something else.

Any evidence to back that up? Any at all?

No, of course you don't. You have a one track brain and have lost all ability to think for yourself.

 

The EC is a broken system. It doesn't matter what party wins or loses next. Or in the last one. The system is still there and greatly flawed.

Couldn’t agree more.

With only two parties, it creates cross contamination within a party.

For example, Bernie Sanders is classified as an Independent but he aligns himself with the Dems.

If he were to run as a third party candidate, he would most certainly pull votes away from the Libs.

The DNC is well aware of it, and that’s why they paid him to go away in 2016.

If conservatives support the idea of more political parties because they think it will only hurt the left, then everyone should just let you think that so that we can get more political parties...

Unfortunately, it’s not up to conservatives or any other political party.
