Here I am with yet another hypothetical forum. But I think this is perhaps my single biggest complaint with elections in general. And I wonder how alone I am in this thinking. Okay, here it is..
I think we should completely do away with electoral college voting and chose the presidency strictly on the entire country's popular vote alone.
Want EVERY vote to truly, truly matter? Make the popular vote the decider. How can you see a map with a state with only 3% reporting, and call it one way or the other, for just one example? Gerrymandering/redistricting, and red/blue districts, among the main reasons.
Electoral voting inherently gives way to selective campaigning and vast efforts to 'rig' or said politely 'skew' the results only where it makes sense and is advantageous. It's an antiquated system that makes me angry watching it all play out.
Can anyone explain to me why this wouldn't be a good idea?
