The Fulcrum published a blog post written by Mark Rush, Waxberg Professor of Politics and Law at Washington and Lee University, titled “If the electors can be faithless, why have an Electoral College?”

In the piece Rush writes, “As controversial and arcane as the Electoral College is, it remains part of the Constitution. If the country wishes to get rid of it, it must do so by constitutional amendment. This is an arduous, slow and time-consuming process. But, it is a process the Constitution outlines clearly. If the Electoral College is such an undemocratic disaster, an amendment to get rid of it should require relatively little trouble.”
