America's Outdated Electoral System
Why does a Wyoming voter wield 3.6 times the electoral college influence that a California voter does? Why is it that twice in the last five presidential elections, the winner of the popular vote has gone down to defeat in the electoral tally? What's wrong here? Has a system designed to accommodate 18th-century geographic and political realities outlived its usefulness? If so, why are we told that it would be all but impossible to change? Perhaps it is possible after all.  We'll explore the current conundrum and a number of intriguing alternatives, including a radical new idea called "the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact."
