The electoral college could become a thing of the past

2 posts in this topic

I've always believed that elections should be decided by the popular vote and not by some state point system. The 2000 election is a great reason. Al Gore won the popular vote and Bush won the electoral college vote.

"The Electoral College could be inching closer to extermination as California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Monday that would award the state's 55 electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote."

And yet this itself could result in the most popular candidate loosing. In a close election one candidate could squeak by by capturing just a slight majority of states with low voter to electoral vote percentages and yet not win the most votes. Even worse, what if we get to a point where we have 3 candidates?

Still, I do agree it is a step in the right direction.
