Currently, the electoral voters are the only ones with a direct vote in the election. In order for the election to be more reflective of the citizens’ wishes, the popular vote should become more significantly tied to the election. The Electoral College should not be the most prominent voting process, when the popular vote should be more important. The risk of untrustworthy electors increases, which causes the voter to feel that they are being cheated out of their votes, which may discourage them from voting in the future. There is also the high possibility in which neither candidates receive the majority of electoral votes required to win election, such as what occurred in the 1824 election, meaning the House of Representatives would have to decide who becomes

The House of Representatives in congress had unfavorable rules for smaller states, therefore causing America to spiral into political dissent. For example: states like Virginia had less influence and power in decisions than Delaware (doc. 4). Bigger states had more say because the representatives were relative to the number of free people, the smaller states had less say in bigger and more important issues, as they might not be taken seriously because of their small numbers (doc. 5).
Can we really say that the American government is truly democratic? Perhaps the major flaw in the American political system is the fabricated voter registration system. It has become more of a science than an art in recent years
States represent the people’s voice in the election because popular vote isn’t important in the Electoral College. There have been numerous times where the candidate with the popular vote has lost because of the state’s power. Document 7 has the 2016 Presidential Election Electoral Vote Map and Projection, it had the democrats winning 237 electoral votes. To the 187 republican votes, this gave democrats the upper hand in the prediction. With this prediction it also connected with the popular vote because Clinton had the popular vote won.
Since the inception of our constitution in 1787, there has only been 4 elections where the Electoral College has allowed the future president-elect candidate to win the election, despite losing the popular vote. 4/57 elections is probably something that political scientists don’t lose sleep over, but it is a topic that is worth mentioning and discussing, especially after the controversial presidential election in 2000. From my point of view, I believe that the method we use in selecting our presidents is flawed and ineffective for a couple of reasons. First, the Electoral College has far fewer votes than the American people, yet their vote has a lot more meaning. With 538 delegates representing the Electoral College, it is unfair and inequitable to the millions of people who devote their time and energy to stand in long
If voters have doubts whether their votes are counted correctly or the process was not impartial then they might feel that the results do not match their desires. The legitimacy of those who are elected weakens when these doubts arise, both of the individual representatives as that of the parliament as a whole. This could ultimately undermine the strengths of the democratic process and institutions in a country. (Lehoucq 2002). Also, voter trust in elections is not the same as support for government in a democracy as that is known as political trust.
Unlike direct democracy, this allows for the most rapid resolution of global strategic issues of a general nature. The main drawbacks of elected representative democracy in comparison with the direct one are the susceptibility to corruption, the struggle for power and control over financial flows, manipulation of public opinion and frequent violation of Human Rights and Freedoms, with insufficient protection of them in the legislation of
According to, (Grofman & Feld), authors of Thinking About the Political Impacts of the Electoral College, "it has been argued that one party may develop a “built-in” advantage in the Electoral College if its strength comes disproportionately from the smaller states" (Grofman, & Feld, 2005). Although, candidates focusing more on the competitive states leave much of the county barely aware that there is even a presidential election going on. Mostly because these states have higher electoral votes. This discourages voter turnout because the individual vote only matters to the context of the state (Constitution,
Additionally, some may argue that a disadvantage of statutory law is that statutes are not made by judges who know the law best, however, it is relevant to note that statutory law goes through a long scrutiny process and most times the acts of parliament that are passed will not be in disservice to the citizens. Perhaps the most
