Reader Opinion: Popular vote vs. Electoral College

The Electoral College on Nov. 8, 2017, elected Donald Trump, despite Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote by more than 2.9 million votes.

The American Bar Association criticized the Electoral College as archaic and ambiguous, and its polling showed 69 percent of lawyers favored abolishing it in 1987.

The president of the United States should be elected by popular vote of the people.
