Should Americans eliminate the Electoral College and elect their presidents through simple majority vote?

Given that some presidents have won without persuading the majority of Americans, and the huge deal of money spent only on swing states I ask myself that question

I have always thought that it is unfair that republicans in California or Democrats in Texas are not taken into account just because people around them think differently.

Time for change?

  • Nov 9 2012: I totally agree with you. In fact, it seems to me that taking into account all popular vote is more fair.I can't understand completely a system where someone can be elected to be the President without the majority of people's vote.
