Cheeto Crybaby says that Democrats are embarrassed because the Electoral College favors us.

So why hasn't ANY reporter then asked him "if that's the case, would you support asking your Republican colleagues to help abolish the Electoral College?"

1. All but one presidents who won Electoral and lost Popular were Republicans.

2. It really bugs me that some wingnut's vote in Wyoming counts for so much

more than that of a New Yorker or Californian.

grrrrrrrrr

3. I'm originally from Wyoming, but could not agree

with you more. Wyoming can keep their 3 electoral votes, but California and New York (among others) deserve a few more after all these years. Wyoming's population has not increased in over 50 years, but they still have the same number of electoral votes.

5. The electoral vote to registered voter ratio is 3.7 times higher in Wyoming than California.

I think one can reasonably state that a Wyoming voter has 3.7 times more power than a California voter, as regards the presidential election.

6. That is more than a reasonable presumption. It is time we

gave a more equitable number of electoral votes to the states. I actually approve of the electoral college, but it is no longer the fair system our founders intended.
