I honestly have a great idea, don't abolish the electoral college, make every state worth the same amount of points. Don't give me the reason that because I don't live in a state that has a higher population that our portion of the vote isn't as high. If you made all states equal, dangerous concept I know, but then the candidates would actually have to visit the country that's voting them into office. Yes, it would make the bus tours more time consuming and difficult but we're talking about our President who'll be set up for life and run our country for us. I also read online that someone can win the election by winning 18 out of the 50 states. Talk about a broke ass system all together.
And honestly I would move if I was a staunch Democrat, but I'm not. I'm a person who votes for the man I believe will make this country great. I don't know why I say that seeing as its the parties and cabinet that run the country most of the time, not the actual President.
That is a terrible idea. You want to give Alaska as much stock in an election as a state with 20 times the population. You are basically saying that millionsbof pplll in the more populous states votes dont matter. Popular vote is the way it should be..its plain and simple and makes sense
