Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the presidential election results may have a silver lining. People are increasingly realizing that the United States’ Electoral College system is a massive fail.
This doesn’t mean it will tossed out. It gives some states disproportionate power to decide the presidency and they will never let that go. But what may happen is that some states’ funky methodologies for picking electors will be cleaned up.
Technically, some state legislators could potentially override the votes of their citizens. Nobody really understood that until Trump tried to take advantage of it.
Now they do, and maybe they will tighten things up.
