Should the electoral college be abolished? I believe so. There have been many instances when people were extremely disappointed with the results of presidential elections because the candidate they voted for acquired the popular vote, but because of the electoral college, the candidate (most of the time not sufficiently qualified to be president) that most citizens did not want to be president.. was. Including the election of 2016, Donald Trump became president, and being a strong Democrat in the Republican state of Montana, I felt it wrong to protest and thought my voice would be washed out by all the cheering from the Republicans. Hillary got the popular vote, but.. I digress. Because of the electoral college, Donald Trump (Certainly not qualified to become president) became our President of the United States. Hey, it's just something i wanted to rant about, so if you have a different opinion, I'd love to hear it. I don't want this to be some crazy thing, just a little debate, so don't throw any hate. Thanks
