POLI-330N Week 4 Discussion: The Electoral College Argument, Politics and Social Media (Option 1)

Document Content and Description Below

Option 2: There are numerous discussions involving the Electoral College. There are some people that want to abolish the electoral college while others want to keep it. What do you think? Keep the ele... ctoral college or abolish it? Explain the reasons for your choice. Many voters were outraged and disillusioned after the 2016 presidential election. President Donald Trump was a minority president, which means he received more electoral votes than popular votes. The presidential election is won by the candidate who collects the most votes, Not the candidate who receives the most votes in the Electoral College, but the candidate who receives the most votes in the Electoral College. People's votes (Greenberg & Page, 2018, p.225). The Electoral College, in my opinion, is the best alternative, but it requires revision. I think the Electoral College be kept. There have been five instances in American history where a President lost the popular vote yet was elected. As a result, many voters questioned whether their vote even mattered. According to Erikson et al., 2020), some claim that the Electoral College favors tiny states since their Electoral College allotments always contain two extra votes representing the two senators that the state elects regardless of size. Since the Electoral College is made up of 538 electors, many people wonder how they are chosen. According to the National Archives and Records Administration, electing Electoral College electors is a two-step procedure. Each state's political party governs the first part. Parties either nominate slates of potential Electors or choose them through a vote on the ballot. I choose to keep Electoral College because many people speculate about whether the Electors vote in support of their party; however, the National Archives and Records Administration reports that "Throughout our history as a republic, more than 99 percent of Electors have voted as pledged" (About the Electors, 2021). "About the Electors." National Archives and Records Administration. (2021) National Archives and Records Administration, www.archives.gov/federal-register/electoral-college/electors.html. Erikson, R. & Sigman, K., & Linan, Y. (2020). Electoral College bias and the 2020 presidential election. Department of Political Science.117(45). https://doi:10.1073/pnas.2013581117. Greenberg, E.S. & Page, B.I. (2018). The struggle for democracy. 2018 Elections and Updates Edition. (12 ed). Pearson. Response 1 The Electoral College has both advantages and disadvantages. It has existed for ages and has problems. What assures a fair and even election of the president rapidly evolved into a nightmare for many American voters. Although the public vote appears to be an excellent method for selecting our president, it would be ineffective without The Electoral College. Response 2 The media continues to target and focus on young adults, and who knows what may happen if it were in their control. Amending the 26th Amendment sounded like a good idea at the time, but it turned out to be a bad idea. The only solution that makes sense is to reinstate the majority rule. [Show More]
