hailey wilson Posted over 2 years ago Direct popular vote should replace the Electoral College. i think that the electoral college should not be replaced. Although some people think that using the popular vote would be more democratic, i think it could actually make it less. People are chosen to be the delegates for their states to represent their states decision. it gives the states a say whether small or large. the popular vote would give big states all the say in who gets elected because they have much bigger populations. the person who gets elected affects both big states and small states. the electoral college allows fair representation for the whole nation.
