The Republican Party is set to win a large majority of all future close presidential elections, even contests in which they lose the popular vote, according to a recent study.
GOP candidates for president can expect to be victorious in 65 percent of future presidential elections and University of Texas at Austin researchers analyzed why "inversions" where the popular vote winner loses the overall election has happened twice since 2000.
The study authors found that the Electoral College's winner-take-all approach favors Republicans and has pushed them to victories in 2000 and 2016.
The researchers concluded that inversions will occur more and more in 2020 and beyond unless a policy change completely dissolves, rather than reforms, the Electoral College.
The study released by the National Bureau of Economic Research last month...

Ballot harvesting, never purge voter rolls, instant registration at polling sites, no ID, and get rid of the electoral college. If you cant win on ideas change the rules.
Ok, just amend the Constitution
have at it, knock yourself out
Mrs. Bill Clinton called for abolishing the Electoral College about 10 years ago. She knew.
California, here we come!
We did a similar study but the correct results stated we should abolish and banish democrats. Then everything would improve significantly.
Most of these “studies” are done at universities...You know how unbiased academia is, right????
NEWS MEDIA OVERWHELMINGLY FAVORS COMMUNISTS, ABOLISHING ENTIRE SYSTEM ONLY REMEDY.
Notice that they don’t talk about states like Illinois where Chicago decides the winner? If anything, the EC should be strengthened. Make it where the winner of that state has to win the most counties.
The founders knew the dangers of mob rule.
Amazing they foretold the mob would consist of democrats.
Or democrats could focus on state and local issues.
Electoral College overwhelmingly favors AMERICAN FREEDOM, abolishing Constitution only remedy.
Geez. For years and years while I was growing up, the system OVERWHELMINGLY favored Democrat control of the House and the Senate. No one seemed to worry about that situation.
More imbeciles confused as regards the difference between a republic and a pure democracy. The founders designed the country’s political system as that of a republic, and they put a good bit of thought into exactly that aspect of it.
It is kind of neat, however, that Republicans are favored in a republican structure, and Democrats in a mob-rule democracy.
Hey Benjamin Fearnow (what a name - gotta be made up) - you need a constitutional amendment to abolish the electoral system. Fear THAT.
Great points, my good FRiend.
To which I might add that the party with the most SUPERDELEGATES (tightly controlled by that party), has no (meaning NONE, at all) standing to comment on made-up election unfairness.
Democrats/Marxists/socialists all just HATE free and fair elections (and anything that gets in the way of their acquisition of power.).
Like voter fraud, the left is determined to disenfranchise rural voters since they dont support leftist politics. Every illegal vote that is cast cancels the vote of an American citizen, which is the only way the Democrats can win.
So the vast majority of of STATES are conservative and the left is crying because California and New York and Chicago can’t tell the rest of the Country how to live.
Headline translation: Too much of U.S. conservative, national vote must be abolished. All your vote are belong to us.
Win the game your playing.
