This map is a perfect example of how the US is viewed by the candidates. It shows the states that have a large amount of electoral votes, and that those are the only states that are view as "important" to the candidates. It is said that if a candidate wins Ohio, that they are more than likely going to win the election. I don't think that is right, because they don't care about voicing their opinions or how they plan to make our country a better place to everyone, they only do it to the few states that can help them win. If we have majority voting, this wouldn't happen, and I think that they would be forced to visit all the states, and care about them equally.
This talks about targeted population and targeted cities. So many big cities around have the majority vote go to certain political parties. For example, Dallas is usually a democratic city, and Bill says its because of the minority population. He thinks that the democrats are mainly ruled by the minorities. I believe this too for the most part, and I think that the majority vote should be the deciding factor since that is what the people wanted in the first place.
There's a sentence in this news article saying that "the Electoral College is an outdated, undemocratic system that does not reflect our modern society, and it needs to change immediately". This is very true because it doesn't entirely let the people have a say in who becomes president. Also, it talks about how Hillary should have won if it was by popular vote, and popular voting makes the most sense. Majority makes the most sense. It's more simple to just go with popular that way the electors can't change their minds.
This video is kind of a continuation of the first one, but it adds more valid points. One would be that
The Electoral College needs to go away for various reasons. This video starts off by explaining that the votes for the election, don't seem to be spread out very fairly. The bigger states like California have a substantially larger amount of votes than smaller states like Wyoming. It also talks about how the Presidential candidates only visit the states with the most votes, and usually end up ignoring about 18 states. This whole video just sums up why the electoral college only favors states with votes, and that small states are often ignored. It shows also that if it went to popular voting, the candidates would be forced to visit more than just the big cities considering the top 100 cities only make up about 20% of the US population.
