How the electoral college is a broken system.

"It turns out that a candidate for President need only win about 21.7% of the national popular vote in order to win the electoral college if those votes are in the right places. The converse of this is equally shocking: a candidate could win 78.3% of the popular vote and still not win the election."

Electoral college disenfranchises voters.

It was originally created because the Founding Fathers mistrusted the average American voter.
