Electoral College Is Democratic, Not democratic

Great idea, Chapman! Let's get rid of that last remaining vestige of states rights, and just hand over the reins to that blue sliver of Dumbocrat Fringe where you and your comrades live. Why should anyone in Indiana get a vote when you and your Chicago buddies obviously know what's best? While we're at it, just for the sake of Truth in Advertising, we might as well change the name. Here's a suggestion. Instead of the United STATES of America, how about: The Union of Soviet Socialist PEOPLE of America! Man, that's sweet! Don't you just love that cool retro vibe? Power to the PEOPLE, baby! Forward!
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.
