Electoral College :facepalm:





In U.S. elections, it's winner take all — and Blacks are the losers


Before that, you had to go back to 1888 and Benjamin Harrison to find a candidate who won the Electoral College while losing the popular vote. There was also the infinitely contentious election of 1876. Since the Electoral College couldn’t decide on a winner, a congressionally appointed commission gave the nod to Republican Rutherford Hayes, but only after both parties agreed to end Reconstruction and effectively put Black Americans back in chains. The notorious Compromise of 1877 ended any chance of racial equality in America for nearly a century.

Electoral college explained: how Biden faces an uphill battle in the US election

“I’m very concerned about the Electoral College,'' said Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the law school at the University of California at Berkley and a Constitutional scholar. "We are the only country in the world that thinks of itself as a democracy where the candidate who loses the (popular vote) can become president.

The Electoral College was here before any of us were born. I'd like to see it go, too.

But to encourage Black people not to vote in presidential elections because YOU are personally aggrieved over it is the height of foolishness.

We won the Electoral College TWICE. Never forget that.

States will eventually abolish the Electoral College. Here's why (and how)



But there is a movement on to make it happen nationwide, and Nevada was the 15th state to join it. The Nevada bill would have agreed to give all of the state’s electoral votes to the candidate who wins the nationwide popular vote. Unfortunately, it was vetoed by Gov. Steve Sisolak.
