Good news, Captain America and Mr. Sulu! You and your comrades in the Scrap The Electoral College Club have a genuine big gun in your corner now:

How do you like that?

No, it’s true!

“I think moving to a popular vote system is not without peril, is not without problems, it’s not a simple ‘one choice is all good, the other is all bad.’ It’s a balancing act. But I think the balance has shifted, in my mind at least, and I think that we should go to a popular vote.”

“Our democracy’s been hacked now. It’s pathetic how our system is not working today,” Gore said.

“And I think that moving to a popular vote for president would be one of the initiatives, getting money out of the process, which is another difficult challenge, but if we could do three or four things that could bring our democracy back to life and help us to make good decisions again.”

Don’t worry, he’s not bitter or anything. He just wants us to make good decisions again!
