Out there in "the public," there are various children (of various ages) who are weeping and gnashing their teeth (rending garments, etc.) over Trump's impending election by the Electoral College in spite of the apparent win by Clinton in the national popular vote. Well pilgrims, this has happened five time in the past and there were undoubtedly cries in each instance to abolish the electoral college system and it never happened. Why? Read the linked parts of the US constitution and you will know why. The electoral college system is an integral part of the Constitution. It is in the body of the Constitution. It exists, as does the provision for two US Senators for each state as well as the 10th Amendment to protect the interests of the less populated states in a FEDERAL REPUBLIC. The people in "the public" who have signed a petition en masse to get rid of the Electoral College are engaged in futile nonsense. Why? Simple, 38 small population states would have to agree to an amendment that would emasculate them. What's the chance? What would be the incentive?
And then there are other visionaries who want all the states to agree to force their Electors to vote in accordance with the national popular vote. That idea is also amusing. I say unto them – Go for it! Let us know when you get them all lined up.
But, let us say for the sake of discussion, that it was somehow agreed that the Electoral College should disappear to be replaced by a national popular system in which the states played no role. What would the system be like? Would it be electronic? Could you log in with some number assigned to you by the feds and then cast your vote on-line?
You could create such a system but it would be endlessly subject to tampering and would make the outcome of elections even more sensitive to the PR industry and the whorish MSM.
