Andrew, I am going out on a limb here, because I could be
wrong. But if I understand you correctly and if (now I sound like
Gore!)you read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, the
electoral college makes the whole process fair, especially between small and
large population states.
>Doing this county by county in a mini-electoral college
format just creates too much opportunity for skewing the vote in favor of the
larger metro areas.< BOY THIS IS TOUGH FOR ME! I believe
the electoral college helps to keep it fair when populations are diverse,
especially in terms of from state to state. Senators and Congressmen are
elected by popular vote because the number of representatives, senators and
congressmen, is limited by population OR they represent a certain number of the
people, and each state has that number established by population.
Jim, can you or do you desire to help clarify this. Or
am I way out in left field?
