The United States Electoral College is the mechanism established by the United States Constitution for the indirect election of the President of the United States and Vice President of the United States. Citizens of the United States vote in each state at a general election to choose a slate of "electors" pledged to vote for a party's candidate. The Twelfth Amendment requires each elector to cast one vote for president and another vote for vice president.
No, require a majority of the popular vote OR a majority of the electoral college for victory, if no majority in the popular vote is attained, revert to the proportional electoral college. If they conflict, the majority of the popular vote wins.
I like the electoral college because I like that it represents the whole country instead of just letting big cities speak for the whole country but I think that in the states the votes should be determined differently than whoever has the most votes gets all the electoral votes because that kind of doesn’t represent the whole country exactly.
I think the population system should be used, but for counties instead of states because a president could win by a few thousand votes in a large swing state, thus giving one candidate way too many votes in the electoral college than they actually deserve. like each county should represent a certain number of votes due to their population.
No, but instead of all the votes going to one party the percentage of the votes for each party are the points. Example- Texas 80% Trump 20% Biden Trump gets 80 points and Biden gets 20 so even if you don't win a state you don't completely lose the state.
