A note on double standards and a message to the left: The electoral college is essentially a progressive policy. It allocates EC votes based largely on population but then weighs less populace states slightly heavier than they’d weigh organically while mildly reducing the influence of the more populous states. That protects the interests of the minority, as to avoid elections which focus almost exclusively on the approval of NY, CA, and a handful of highly-dense cities, with no reason to concern oneself with the interests of the less populous states.

It’s similar in ideology to a progressive income tax whereby the less fortunate are slightly propped up at the expense of the exceedingly fortunate. It’s similar in concept to affirmative action, whereby the historically disenfranchised are assisted as to overcome a trend of marginalization. It’s also similar to the structure of Congress, where the interests of the people (house of representatives weighted on population) are blended with the interests of sovereign states (weighted equally with two senate seats each), again to protect the minority from being ignored while also advancing the interests of the majority.

So to the despondent liberals protesting the supposed unfairness of the Electoral College, I say, be consistent. Had such a system benefited YOUR candidate, you’d passionately champion it as a means to balance the interests of the minority. THE ONLY REASON YOU’RE AGAINST IT IS BECAUSE IT HAPPENED TO HARM YOUR PREFERRED CANDIDATE. THAT’s a double standard.
