Abolish the electoral college 

Once again, the electoral college is moronic and must be abolished.

It gives the biggest states a disproportionate amount of power to decide the Presidential election.

It doesn't do anything for voters in them tiny podunk states out west -- how often do the candidates visit those states under the current system?

It gives lawyers for both candidates an incentive to raise a stink in any state where the popular vote is close. If there were no electoral college, there'd be no reason to try to scrounge up an extra 537 votes in Florida.

Finally, professional windbag Katha Pollitt supports the electoral college. What other reason do you need?
