The Founders Warned Us: Electoral College Protects Against ‘Overbearing Majority’



By: Dr. Justin DePlato
August 13, 2019

An apparent new litmus test has appeared among the 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls: abolishing the Electoral College.

Calls to abolish the Electoral College are not new, but the debate surrounding the practicality and effectiveness of the Electoral College has quite possibly never been so robust as it has been in the nearly three years that have followed the 2016 presidential election.

Earlier this year, Democratic presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren stated her wish to abolish the Electoral College, “I believe we need a constitutional amendment that protects the right to vote for every American citizen and makes sure that vote gets counted.” Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke at a rally in South Carolina in March said, “I was talking to somebody today who had a great idea on how to address this system. … What if in every state, those electors that are selected through our national elections are selected proportionate to the popular vote in the state. In other words, no state would have a winner-take-all system.”

Senator Kamala Harris has alluded to the idea of fixing it and Mayor Pete Buttigieg said to the Washington Post, “Its gotta go.”
