An interesting observation from Michael Patrick Carroll

Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll, via PoliticsNJ:

The President of the United States is the President of the United States, not the president of the people of the United States. The point is, the states mean something.

I get what you’re saying, Assemblyman, but I still disagree.

If it’s the will of the states that interests you more than that of the people, think about this: the majority of our states are overlooked under this broken system. Both parties’ resources and attention are heaped upon a dozen or so swing states. This is because candidates are seeking an Electoral College victory — not a victory of all fifty states (and even less so of the people, if that’s your interest).

So, it would be in the interest of all fifty states — not just the people — to sidestep the Electoral College with National Popular Vote legislation.
