Default Electoral College?

In US history, three presidents have won office without winning the popular vote.

Two of those instances have happened in the last 20 years.

Is it time to do away with the Electoral College?

Absolutely not!!!! there could be some modification discussed in Congress regarding distribution and representation to help cut down on Jerrimandering by either major party, but we're a Republic and not a democracy. Direct democracy would be more awful than what we have now. It would mean essentially mob rule.

I hope the electoral college dies a painful, yet quick, death.

Also, the horrors of 'mob rule'...bah. Not even worth going there.
