Popular vote should be reinforced through our election system instead of electoral college. By reinstating Popular vote, poltical gambit and strategy will be reduced. Thus, leading most candiates to go to all states instead of ones that hold more electoral college. As a result, Americans will have more of a voice of who to elect as president than with the status quo system that we have implemented in our system today.

Well, my opponent didn't ive me anything to attack, so I will give some thoughts on the topic.
The electoral college is a better system because it designates the big population states as the ones who make decisions. The more people that move to that state means that the state gets electoral votes. It's almost as though we are blaming the people who live in those states for the presidency. Is that fair? Not at all. By doing that, those people feel hostile because we are blaming them for who they voted for.
