Count me in with those that think the electoral college system is broken. It has left us with a de facto tyranny from the minority. Read about the astounding advantage the electoral college gives to Republicans.
The study, by three economics researchers at the University of Texas, quantifies just how often the Electoral College will produce an “inversion” — that is, an election where one candidate wins the popular vote but the other walks away with the presidency. The numbers are simply astonishing.In modern elections where one party prevails by just 2 points in the two-party popular vote, “inversions are expected in more than 30% of elections.” That number rises to 40 percent in elections with a 1 percentage-point margin.Republicans, moreover, are far more likely to benefit from an inversion than Democrats. “In the modern period,” the study suggests, “Republicans should be expected to win 65% of Presidential contests in which they narrowly lose the popular vote.”We have to stop penalizing people who live in highly populated states. Their vote should be equal to that of every other citizen. Time to do away with the electoral college. I am tired of being ruled by a minority of my fellow citizens, especially parasitic red state voters who suck so much of the Federal tax money that States like California provide and who give back so little in return.
Here, here. Sixty-two percent of New Hampshire Democrats said they would prefer to see a large stray shooting star crash into Earth and end all human life than suffer through the reelection of President Trump, according to a UMass-Lowell poll.
