Because of this, the electoral college must be maintained and protected.Furthermore, the electoral college allows the people within the states to have a more distinguished voice. As Donald Trump explains, “With the Popular Vote, you go to just the large States — the Cities would end up running the Country. Smaller States & the entire Midwest would end up losing all power — & we can’t let that happen.” Without the electoral college, lower-class people, as well as people in poverty, would have little to no say in the candidates thatbecome elected. Through the use of the electoral college, a voice is given to these people and therefore the representation of United States citizens is closer to equal. Because of this, the electoral college must be upheld to prevent the complete oppression of lower-class individuals.In conclusion, the electoral college must be kept because of its ability to equalize the social classes and its ability to give the smaller states more of a say in who gets elected into office. If the U.S. were to abandon the electoral college, the larger states would keep and
maintain political power and would ultimately take over most aspects of the U.S. For these reasons, it is crucial that electoral colleges are not abandoned and are instead treasured and maintained.Proulx, Natalie. “Should the U.S. Get Rid of the Electoral College?” The New York Times, The New York Times, 28 Mar. 2019, -of-the-electoral-college.html.
