The past 2 weeks or so in my American Government class we have been talking about the electoral college and how it works.
I am just wondering what people's opinion on the electoral college is, I personally think that another system needs to be put into place but the current system needs to be disbanded.
If you don't know what I am talking about the electoral college is basically the college that elects the president, yes it takes into consideration of popular vote, but recently there have been two presidents elected because of electoral votes and not popular (most recent was gore vs bush). A state has so many votes (ga has 13 but its the number of people in the house of representatives plus 2 (the ones in the senate)) and D.C has 3. the people who get at least 270 votes will become president.
There is probably more on wikipedia, but I am getting tired and have to wake up early to get to work
