what are the functions of a political party in the U.S. User: what are the effects of the electoral college and should it be replaced with a system of solely popular vote
Weegy: It was developed to give all states a voice. If we went by popular vote alone, candidates would only focus on major cities and the states of New York and California. Most of America would be ignored and NOT REPRESENTED. [ Just look at the county by county vote for 2004 and 2000 at the link below. The vast majority of the geographic area of the U.S. is conservative to moderate. If we went by popular vote, the urban leftists would become virtual dictators over the rest of the country. ] User: thank you :) (More)
