A majority of voters want to abolish the electoral college

Only the Republican Party wants to keep this crap anachronism…because they believe more often than not, they benefit from avoiding a democratic vote.

89% of Democrats, 68% of Independents and 23% of Republicans support amending the Constitution to abolish the Electoral College and base the presidential election on the popular vote, according to the poll, which was conducted between August 31 and September 13.

Overall support for abolishing the Electoral College is at its highest point since 2011 (62% supported abolishing it) and six points higher than in 2019, and support among Democrats is the highest it’s been at any point since Gallup began tracking the question again in 2000.

Crank up your favorite search engine and wander around looking for “abolishing the electoral college”. You’ll even find a state or two that have moved to avoid it on their own with a compact regulating their state results to choose electors who represent the percentages cast exactly.
