They can amend the Constitution. The electoral college may have been a good idea in the past, but it's unnecessary now.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75079861



Get the f out - We live in a representative republic, We don't want California and New York to pick every president as well as having way too many votes in congress. You what, think the other less populated states would vote to amend the constitution? It will never happen, just like your universal basic income and Trump-Russian collusion, Impeachment it is a liberal fantasy. You are a danger to society not because you are a lib, but because you are so damn stupid you don't even know what the hell you are saying.

Re: Trump pushes to swap Electoral College for popular vote
Other countries manage quite nicely with only the popular vote. Why do Americans even bother voting since the Electoral College is the great decider.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 73324455


Do you know that the public doesn't elect the president? Your state does, through the Electoral College. The popular side of the vote determines how many people voted and who for.
 Quoting: Catnip


And that's the big flaw with the electoral college. The electors sent by the states can vote any way they want to no matter who won the state vote.
 Quoting: NDFarm


You always hear about people claiming this, but it is not a reality, state constitutions are very precise in the rules. Some states like Maine split electoral votes so all counties are treated fairly. They need to do that in all states instead of winner of the popular vote takes all EC votes. Upstate NY, Orange County CA, and in places like rural PA, MA and Illinois is where your vote for president doesn't really count, because of NYC, LA, Chicago and Philadelphia. That is why conservative people in those states stay usually stay home. Trump got people in rural PA to come out which was huge, but eliminating the electoral college means that LA, NYC and Boston always decide who will be president. Our country would be in civil war within a decade.

Trump on Fox and Friends:

Does this sound sarcastic to you?

“Remember, we won the election. And we won it easily. You know, a lot of people say ‘Oh, it was close.’ And by the way, they also like to always talk about Electoral College. Well, it’s an election based on the Electoral College. I would rather have a popular election, but it’s a totally different campaign,” Trump said. “It’s as though you're running — if you're a runner, you're practicing for the 100-yard dash as opposed to the 1-mile.”

“The Electoral College is different. I would rather have the popular vote because it's, to me, it's much easier to win the popular vote,” he continued.
