I say get rid of the Electoral College and go based upon the popular vote by passing the states! However if you want to keep the Electoral College the Electoral College must match the popular vote if not we go back and vote again until it does keep doing it until it does then the government might decide to get rid of the Electoral College!!!

If you're wondering why the U.S. desperately needs an electoral college, look at California. Debt, poverty, crap in the streets, the state is a master at what not to do. The electoral college means their voting power is limited. Just because your state is large doesn't mean it gets to dictate what others do.

@Quintinohthree "Yes, a popular vote gives California more power than the Electoral College gives "California", but it gives "California" a whole lot less power". This might just be the cold I'm shaking off, but I'm not sure that sentence is entirely coherent...

The Electoral College gives "California" quite a bit more power than it gets in a popular vote. Of course, that's because "California" represents only the plurality of Californians, while all the other Californians are entirely powerless in the Electoral college. Yes, a popular vote gives California more power than the Electoral College gives "California", but it gives "California" a whole lot less power and it seems you're arguing that would be a good thing.

This plan is entirely predicated on small states being willing to give up their own representative power - why would they ever want to surrender their own disproportionate representation?

Vermont, DC, Delaware, Rhode Island and Hawaii already have, all states with only 3 or 4 electors. That's 5 out of the 16 so far, that's a greater proportion than similarly small states within the US. It's not a question of why, it's a question of why not more.

I think it’s important to realize that the idea of the electoral college was to provide support for smaller rural states who contributed largely to the economy and had to compete with the far more densely popular urban states. However, now farming and agricultural jobs only make up around 2% of jobs as opposed to the original 50%, and most of these states have urbanized as well. If we want a legitimate democracy we need votes by the people to matter. Every vote counts

The initiative is very much democratic which raises some problems since its their decision on when to trigger this thing. It's a sort of 'I win button' in case the horse you bet on suddenly loses via electoral college. No sane democrat is going to trigger this thing if a person sitting on the top is also a democrat. That's what didn't get put across. That this benefits one side more than the other.

With the electoral college if a state joins the union they can continue to run their own election.

Nah. I love the electoral college. It keeps the big cities and states with a much larger population from being tyrants to the more rural areas of the country. It's well know that different geological areas have different cultures, principles and needs. The only amendment i would be willing to vote for is that the state can divide its votes proportionally to the way its citizens voted and never vote against its cutizens. Even proportional voting would be risking that big left leaning cities would out vote the majority right leaning part of a state. (Virginia for example)

why are people so bent out of shape over the EC? if it was a problem then well over half the president's elected would have won the EC but lost popular vote. only 5 presidents in history has won the EC and lost popular vote. 3 in the 1800s, 1 in 2000 and 1 in 2016. so the EC is not a problem at all its working as intended to allow the minority to have some voice over the majority at times. this whole "anti EC" movement is just an "orange man bad" movement because their arguement is relies on a "maybe." if anything the EC has had little impact on who was chosen considering the ratio.

Ultimately, a debate in a YouTube comments section is pointless. i won't convince you and you won't convince me, itll just waste both our time. i respect your opinion and viewpoint but i disagree entirely.

Why have 5+ failures if we could have 0? _Yes, those were failures._ You can't justify giving a minority of the population significantly higher voting power, nor can you justify electors not being forced to vote according to the population they represent/nationwide (pick one). The minority (nationwide) *does not matter*. If they want to matter, the correct approach is to convince members of the majority to change their viewpoint, causing the % to flip. This already happens, it's a theory known as the political pendulum. The minority inherently doesn't matter, that's how politics is. Artificially giving them a voice is not justifiable, that's how classism forms. All the rich and influential will move to a less-populus state. It may not have been a problem yet, but consider that this country is only ~250 years old; anything can happen and we have no way to accurately predict it one way or the other. Further, putting a political valance on an argument is counterproductive and just shows that you are biased. If we flip party lines and beliefs, would you still be against the scheme?

Difficult balancing act between preventing city-dwellers occupying tiny amounts of the country, but in high-densities, who know little of life outside cities forcing policy on people living difficult realities usually made worse by statist interventions, and people feeling their vote doesn't count because the focus is always on swing-states (or here in the UK, marginal seats), meaning they have no faith at all in democracy.

So the plan is to hope politicians work together for the good of the citizens instead of, say, taking a fat bonus check to the bank? Sure, good luck with that. In the mean time I’m going to not vote because it still seems pointless to bother trying. Also this plan pretty much makes it so nobody running outside of R or D parties will ever get elected as those are the only two parties the majority of the country would vote for. That would kill every other party.
