The electoral college has always been the wrong way to choose a president – LA Times

I agree with the view, that this process is out-of-date, needs to be changed via legal means, and in the current state of affairs; if we had the “one man, one vote” principle of democracy solidly in place, Hillary Clinton would be about to become our President. . .


“As a practical matter, we can’t depend on a constitutional amendment to eliminate the electoral college. Amendments require ratification by three-quarters of the states, and enough small states think they benefit from the system that an amendment would never pass. Instead, it’s up to the Supreme Court — and a properly framed lawsuit — to do away with a system that not only never functioned as the framers intended but blatantly violates the court’s ‘one person, one vote’ principle.”
