In a very odd coincidence the Electoral College topic came up at dinner last night. This was at the home of those folks from NYC that I had talked about recently. I had said it must be exciting to live in a battleground State knowing that your vote really matters in Federal elections. The husband then says we should just do away with the Electoral College and do it by popular vote. I made a quick decision that I don’t know these folks well enough to get into a real political discussion, especially with a British citizen come here via NYC.
