RE: Government Through the Looking Glass: Eliminating the Electoral College

My classmate, Erin, had this to say. Here is what I think:

I aslo believe that the Electoral College is an extremely outdated method of electing our country's leaders. When it was established, most citizens were workers and did not have an education. Now the majority of Americans have high school diploma or equivalent. And with the instantaneousness and vast amount of information and news these days with the internet, we have no problem researching the candidates on our own and casting the vote. I agree with Erin that we should adopt a direct democracy. This would also prevent another situation where the candidate wins the poular vote but loses the election becuase of the Electoral College.
