I live in the UK, and with the recent election in the USA, the thing that struck me most about it was not who won, or what had been won... ...it was why and how it was won. We have a similar majority system over here in the UK, but we do not have this 'electoral college' you have in the USA. Being entirely ignorant and completely interested about this subject... I looked further into it... and came to the conclusion that whilst it was representative of the majority of the public's vote in each state... surely it does not represent each voter individually, therefore inherently cannot be democratic. After all, a few unelected electors decide crucial decisions. From where I'm standing I would say abolish the electoral college, and/or introduce a compulsory condorcet vote in. I really want to see whether Americans agree with this system and whether you guys think that the electoral college should be kept? or abolished? or maybe changed? What do you think?
