Again, this illustrates the fact that because of the electoral college a persons individual vote does not matter. The time at which the public votes for the president is just to gauge who could win. The people typically have no say in the election after that. It is all up to the electoral college. The people can only hope that the people they elected to represent them, accurately reflect their will.
As stated in the video, the electoral college nullifies the votes of majority of the population. Popular vote is only used as a means to gauge who will win the election. The president and is chosen by the electoral college. They are supposed to represent their state. Often times the electoral votes for the state end up going to someone that lost the popular vote for the state. This makes our votes and opinions irrelevant and we basically have no say in who runs the country.
Electoral votes are divided unequally. Small states that should have less votes have more. Larger states have less than they should. This is because the Constitution says each state must have at least three. Larger states need to give a few of their votes to the smaller states. The votes that they gave up could have gone to the loosing candidate for that state, changing the course of the election.
There are a ton of reasons why the electoral college is a problem in the US, but the main issues include; distortion of the presidential campaign and the misrepresentation of the people. There are a several key states that the candidates must win in order for them to win the election. Due to this fact, states that do not normally have a strong pull for the candidates tend to be ignored during the campaign. The electoral college also puts a damper on the whole "one person, one vote" thing. Since each state has a set amount of votes that are not distributed based on population, the people are misrepresented and their opinion and votes are not taken into account.
States do not use the electoral college as a means to elect their governor and other officials. They use a direct election to pick their officials, a popular vote. If the state does not use the electoral college as a means of electing officials, neither should the national government. Voting for every government official that represents the people should be the same at every level; city, state, and national. The same system should be used because it is an accurate representation of the will of the people.
