  • Jan 2 2013: I think that the popular vote should be used over the electoral college because it ensures equal representation among the entire nation. With the electoral college, a candidate in an election may have more people that actually voted for them in a particular state however that doesn't mean they necessarily win because the electors may vote the opposite way. I feel that it is unjust to have our system work this way especially with the win or take all system.
