  1. Abolishing the Electoral College is a colossally dumb idea. The NPV plan, which has that same effect, may be even more colossally dumb. Glad to see that this happend.

    I do think the Electoral College needs to be reformed, particularly how states award their electors. I believe that unless a candidate gets an outright majority of the votes in a state, the electors should be allocated proportionately.

  2. Instant Runoff or Condorcet voting for Presidential Electors would have a much more substantial impact for swing states like Colorado.
