That said, is the media even talking about that kind of thing with Trump? Sure there's this thread, but on a mass media level, is this really an idea (changing the electoral system) that people are pushing?
Because democrats are sore losers.
Ultimately, I'm trying to explore this idea at a philosophical level. Hence my questions were along the lines of "how different would things be if electoral votes were split, or if we had a popular vote". I'm thinking it would destroy the two party system. Something both Ds and Rs wouldn't like. Notice you don't see any democrats really calling for a change to the electoral system (at least I haven't seen any).
Thanks for the answer . If anything maybe we could go with something like a 6 year term alternating the Democrats and the Republicans. Haven't though too much about it but these elections are ripping us apart as a country. I don't know how to break the two party system maybe terms limits in congress would help?
Maybe you should check a little closer
