Electoral College Is Democratic, Not democratic

Actually, we should make the following amendments: (1) the House elects the President; (2) the Senate elects the Vice President; (3) the State legislatures elect their respective Senators. With 30 states controlled by Republicans, the Senate would be majority Republicans by now. I no longer have faith in the people to make informed decisions. I prefer their representatives in the House and the States make these decisions from now on.

If this were the case, back in '08, the Dems in the House most likely would have elected Hillary. Then, after the Republican takeover in '10, the Republicans in the House would have elected Romney.

If these amendments were in place, voter fraud would be less likely and billions of dollars needn't be spent campaigning.
In 2000, conservatives were obligated to explain why they supported preservation of the Electoral College even though it produced a victory for their candidate, George W. Bush. In coming elections, their devotion may face a sterner test: Will they favor it if Democrats win the White House even when Republicans carry the popular vote?

Mitt Romney managed to avoid that problem by coming up short across the board. But while Republicans have noticed that the voting public is changing in ways that don't help the GOP, they may not have noticed that the electoral map has also shifted to their clear disadvantage.
