The Electoral College and Proportionality

United States—Electing the President and Vice President

by David Wilson

Book Image Not Available
Overview
This book demonstrates the equitability of the Electoral College as a proportional representation of the population, which provides voting power for every state, regardless of its population, in electing the president and vice president of the United States.
Description
This book will mathematically demonstrate that the Electoral College, and not a nationwide popular vote, to elect the president is not only fair, but also is compatible with our republic form of government. There is no national office in America that is elected by popular vote. Imagine electing the Speaker of the House, confirming cabinet members, federal judges, etc., with a popular vote. In addition, the current system is replete with checks and balances to ensure that a fair, legal, and guarded process is followed in electing the president and vice president of the United States.
