Watching this video really made me wonder about how the electoral system in the USA really works, and what could be done to fix it, or at least provide a more representative result.
In the 2016 Presidential race, Democrat Hilary Clinton had the largest winning margin over her rival Donald Trump than ever seen before, with 2.87 million more votes nationwide, but still lost the election overall due to how the electoral college functions.
Do you think it would simply be a matter of redistributing the votes in direct proportion to where the population live? Or does the Electoral College need to go in favour of a different system completely? For example France use the Two-Round system for their presidential election, would that work in the USA even with the considerable difference in population size?
