Do you realize we are talking about the Presidential election?

Right now, effectively, we have a popular vote that is rounded off in strange ways at the state level (with the electoral college) such that we sometimes elect one of two (limited) choices for president where the winner might get less votes than the looser.

How is THAT representative.

We are not talking about making the whole nation run by popular vote. Just the presidential position.

Did you even bother to read about the proposal?
