Akhil Reed Amar, is a professor at a school in Connecticut where he is showing voice. This is his story:
NO! The Electoral College is hopelessly outdated. Direct national election would fit better with the American ideal of every person having one vote, equal in value to every other vote. The Electoral college was designed at the founding or our country to help one group: white southern males. Under a direct national election system, northern voters would have outnumbered southerners. But under the Electoral College, the south was given extra clout, thanks to its (nonvoting)slave population. Direct elections would still encourage candidates to focus on voters in all regions. If one person, one vote is the best way to pick governors, why not the country's president? The Electoral college was unfair at our nation's founding, and it still is. So why keep it? Give your answer or your opinion about this.
