The Electoral College’s Dirty History

Listen:


Who are the electors, anyway? And will the United States ever join the rest of the world, and adopt a popular vote for president?  Yale University Law & Political Science Professor Akhil Reed Amar says the Electoral College discourages voting, lessens the power of the states, and could work to the disadvantage of either major political party.  On this edition, Akhil Reed Amar speaks with Angela McKenzie of Initiative Radio about how the US constitution can be changed to create a more fair and just society.

Featuring:

Akhil Reed Amar, Yale University Sterling Law and Political Science professor; Angela McKenzie, Initiative Radio host.
