Matthew Marino Posted about 1 year ago Direct popular vote should replace the Electoral College. I agree that the electoral college is a fair way to gauge the people's views of who should be elected. Particularly because the electoral college is always consistent. Every member of the college votes in every election, where the actual rate of voter turn out has been sharply decreasing over the last few elections. This could create the possibility of a single political party being factored out completely in a single election, because their supporters may not be showing up to the polls.
