Potential Electoral Changes

The Political State Report reports that there is an amendment on the ballot in Colorado to address allocation of that state’s electors. I’m still not sure why the opponents of the Electoral College think that the problem with it is that the popular loser could win the College. There has have only been one two three cases where that has happened, in 1876, 1888 and 2000.

I suppose that the proponents of election by a simple majority of the populace think that they have nothing to suffer from that particular expression of the General Will. Without addressing that particular problem, the Electoral College remains an adequate, if clumsy, defense.

(I really should double-check the record before making assertions.)
