I think that the electoral college in modern times has served to allow for very unfortunate elections to happen that have been negative overall for America. Bush and trump were/are both financial and social disasters. They were/are trash of the hottest form. But without the EC basically California and every large city would decided every single election. And while as a liberal that would probably work out well for me it is not really fair that that be the case. I think the system should be revamped or at least looked at again (I’m sorry the founding fathers gave us a lot of crap and honestly everything they did is pretty much just OK at best and absolutely ridiculous at worst and all of it should be looked at and updated because that was CENTURIES AGO and we need to move forward they weren’t THAT great guys) but I don’t necessarily think abandoning the EC is the way to go about it.
