Host of reasons to scrap Electoral College
Jack Beermann writes: John E. Sununu’s main point is that the Electoral College gets the candidates to campaign in the small states. This is simply untrue. How many presidential candidates have actually campaigned in Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, or Alaska in recent years? If the popular vote is good enough for large states such as California, New York, and Texas, it’s good enough for the United States as a whole.
