There is no constitutional clause that forces the electors in the Electoral College to abide by the popular vote of their state. That being said, there are safeguards (i.e. penalties, fines, incarceration, etc.) in place in 29 states to make sure that they do.

Although this is true, it's pretty much an idiotic ideal that if they disagree with the choice, they get fined for it. Isn't the electoral college there to have the safety of our country a priority? If they vote for something that they feel is a breach of that safety, why bother having the electoral college?

Right? If you're going to be an oligarchy, at least go balls out with it.

The Electoral College is supposedly in place to ensure that all states, regardless of size, are "fairly" represented. If the election went STRICTLY by the popular vote, one would only have to campaign in and win a handful of major metropolitan cities in order to win the election, thus leaving the remaining 80%+ of the nation without a voice. That is the best explanation that I have heard, anyhow. For the record, the Electoral college is bunk.

I think popular vote is clearly the fairest way. Maine recently implemented ranked-choice voting, which, in my opinion, is tantamount to giving each voter more than 1 vote, which again, is bunk.

Which ends up happening anyways, that's why they campaign and tour hardcore in battleground states and **** the rest of the states that aren't on their radar.

Bu really, who wants their campaign energy? How much of it is genuine?
