In Defense of the Electoral College

Slate Defends the Electoral College..

In November 2012 Slate published a piece called “In Defense of the Electoral College” that lists five reasons why the system, which allows state electors to ultimately select the future president whether or not that person won the popular vote, is actually great for democracy.

Those reasons include the “certainty of outcome” and being able to avoid run-off elections.

In December 2016 Slate published a new piece calling the Electoral College an “instrument of white supremacy and sexism.”

The difference?

  • 2012 was the Barack Obama election.
  • 2016 was the Donald Trump election.

Is this attitude biased for any reason?
