I agree, its pointless. Theres this myth out there that a direct election would force the candidates to concentrate on only big cities, but how is that any different than what we have now where they only campaign in like 7 or 8 swing states? IN fact, id argue that the EC makes alot of voters stay home and not care, if they know their vote doesnt matter.
Ill take an election process with a TRUE "Every Vote Counts" any day of the week.
The Electoral College is a Joke.
Become a swing state. Stop voting for a single party every single time.
