Yes, I agree with most of what he says.... ;)

I wonder though, do you think if we got rid of the Electoral College would it improve some of these problems??

I hear that but you didn't answer my question. Do you think some of the problems he mentions would be eliminated if we were to get rid of the Electoral College? I'm just curious to get your POV on this?

Can you be more specific?

I'm just wondering if by eliminating the EC, people would feel more strongly that their vote counts, less resentment towards the system.

If we had an election that was won by popular vote, would there be less chance of demands for re-counts and lawsuits? Personally, If I won an election by the EC and not the PV, I wouldn't really feel like I won.

If you posted on this already, no need to go back over your points. I'll read through that post, I'm assuming it's under the post "Electoral College"??
