Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to author, lawyer, and Electoral College expert Tara Ross about why she thinks we need the Electoral College. Do you understand the Electoral College? How did the founders deal with the popular vote vs. the Electoral College question? Why did they, after a careful study of history, come to the conclusion that pure democracies do not work and decide to create a system to pick the president not by a nationwide, popular vote but instead by 538 electors? According to Tara Ross the Electoral College is essential because it helps preserve our republic of diverse states from a tyranny of the majority. There are beginning to be more people trying to get rid of the Electoral College, and instead have a majority-rule affair where the President is chosen by a national popular vote. So It’s more important than ever to understand what the Electoral College is and why America uses it to elect its presidents. Tara will correct many of the myths surrounding the Electoral College. She will also discuss the United States Constitution and what most Americans get wrong about it in regard to states rights. She will show how you shouldn’t assume that a red state will always be a red state and vice versa since states have unexpectedly flipped in the past.

Is the state of US news driving you crazy? Does the coverage of political news rarely seem “fair and balanced”? Serious discussions on US politics is vital to having a healthy democracy. No matter what political party you belong to, we need to be able to hear a variety of political perspectives.
