This is tragically wrong.
I've been writing about the #ElectoralCollege since, well, college.
It's a relic of America's slave-owning past. It gives some voters a full vote--VT, IA, WY--& others--CA, PA. NY, TX--a quarter of a vote.
It must be abolished.
White men love to rush to the defense of the #ElectoralCollege with "it's in the Constitution!" So was slavery, but we got rid of that, too.

The EC no longer has any function except to protect Republicans from blaclk voters--which is, ironically, it's original function.
The GOP wants to maintain the #ElectoralCollege because only Democrats ever get screwed by it. As America gets more "color," those little white states where one person does equal one vote are vital, versus states that are majority minority.
That's why the EC has to go: fairness.
Oh and if I wasn't clear in my previous three tweets on this: The #ElectoralCollege is #racist af. Its sole purpose is to ensure white people get more control than anyone else. And coming from a state where we get a quarter of a vote, I say enough.
And let me add to this that the #ElectoralCollege problem is underscored by the Senate problem where the imbalance of representation gets more stunning with each election.
Bernie Sanders represents 623k people.
Kamala Harris represents 40.2M
Kirsten Gillibrand represents 20M
