Prager University: Do You Understand the Electoral College?
"Give us five-minutes and we’ll give you a semester." - Dennis Prager
This semester of Prager University is presented by: Tara Ross
"The President and Vice President of the United States are not chosen by a nation-wide popular vote of the American people. Rather, they are chosen by 538 Electors. This process is spelled out in the United States Constitution...The Founders had no intention of creating a pure majority-rule democracy." – T.R.
"The Electoral College is an ingenious method of selecting a President for a great, diverse republic such as our own. It protects against the tyranny of the majority, encourages coalition building, and discourages voter fraud. Our Founders were proud of it, we can be too." – T.R.
