Should the electoral college be abolished?
After the electoral college enabled Bush to win the presidency in 2000, despite losing the popular vote, support for replacing the electoral college with a popular vote
decreased among Republicans from 62% to 44%
It also increased amongst Democrats. Showing that they want to change to a system that will guarantee them more wins
Regardless of recent historical events, the electoral college has purposes other than to further the goals of one party or another: to reduce mob rule by people who live in just a few cities, to encourage candidates to campaign in more locations, and lower the incidence of "vote stealing"
