I was sitting here thinking, never a good thing.
as I was thinking, it occurred to me that the states do not need the popular vote, as they have in fact enacted it. Think about it, if a President gets the most votes in a state, they award the total electors to that person.
Is this what the founders thought when they designed the system? I don’t think so. I believe they imagined that each elector would represent the district’s votes. thus a state like NY could have say 20 electors, and not all 20 would go to that person, But would go as each legislative district voted. so say the city could not tell the whole of the sate how to vote.
I am calling for a change in all the states electoral colleges. That of, each elector would actually represent their legislative district and would vote as that district voted. This would take us back to the way the founders wants. If you look at the current system we basically have 8 states that decide the election. is that right??? so lets go back and change states laws from winner takes all to proper representation.
