New polls find broad support for electing the president by popular vote. Here’s how it could happen.
Two new polls released this month have found significant public support for ending America’s status as the world’s only democracy that uses an electoral college to elect its president. The nonpartisan Pew Research Center publicized a survey that finds a 65-33 majority in favor of ditching the Electoral College and instead electing the candidate who wins the most votes, while the Democratic firm Civiqs unveiled a new tracking poll whose numbers as of Thursday find a 51-42 majority in support of the idea.
