They just don’t get it, we have the electoral college because it works. The Trump win in the majority of counties across the USA proves it.
Our system does not allow for mob rule, why? We are NOT a pure Democracy which would allow tyranny over the minority of the population. Like it or not, people in the ‘mob’ cities are different from the rest of the country. These people have been fully indoctrinated by the democrats through the department of education and why that needs to be changed too.
My point being, the USA is a sovereign nation and what the rest of the world thinks does not matter. The rest of the world is run by mob rule and we have to protect them doesn’t that tell you something? Interesting bit of history in the article, however, we are not the rest of the world.
The U.S. electoral college is a medieval relic. For several centuries, many political communities in Europe and the Americas used electors chosen from different territorial and political units to select a main magistrate. The United States is the only country in the world to still use the system to elect a president.
