On this edition of Your Call, we rebroadcast our conversation with Jesse Wegman, author of, Let The People Pick The President: The Case For Abolishing The Electoral College.Wegman argues that the Electoral College discounts millions of voters and ultimately lets people in key “battleground” states decide the presidential election. Twice in the last five elections, the Electoral College has overridden the popular vote. Do you think it’s time to abolish the Electoral College?
