Saving the Electoral College: Why the National Popular Vote Would Undermine Democracy

Author(s): Hardaway, Robert;
Contributors: Hardaway, Robert;
Abstract:

The 2016 election caused many pundits and citizens alike to decry the Electoral College. This book explains the dangerous and unconstitutional implications of the National Popular Vote Bill, which is quietly passing in state houses across the nation.


• Exposes the National Popular Vote movement, which seeks to abolish the Electoral College, by making readers aware of this its agenda, financing, and goal of effectively amending the constitutional process by a means that takes place under the radar of the general public

• Presents as succinctly and clearly as possible the dubious constitutional grounds for the Compact, as well as the ramifications if it were to somehow be approved by the U.S. Supreme Court

• Illustrates exactly how this movement is succeeding in state after state precisely because the public is uninformed about the Electoral College

• Shows how the abolition of the Electoral College and inauguration of a national "popular vote" would actually result in an outcome that is contrary to the goals of many of its supporters
