Some brief overview of book

"People have been arguing against the Electoral College from the beginning. But no one has laid out the case as comprehensively and as readably as Jesse Wegman." Josh Chafetz, New York Times Book Review The framers of the Constitution battled over it. Lawmakers have tried to amend or abolish it more than 700 times.

To this day, millions of voters, and even members of Congress, misunderstand how it works. It deepens our national divide and distorts the core democratic principles of political equality and majority rule. How can we tolerate the Electoral College when every vote does not count the same, and the candidate who gets the most votes can lose?

The message from the American people is clear The way we vote for the only official whose job it is to represent all Americans is neither fair nor just. Major reform is needednow. Isn't it time to let the people pick the president?

In this thoroughly researched and engaging call to arms, Supreme Court journalist and New York Times editorial board member Jesse Wegman draws upon the history of the founding era, as well as information gleaned from campaign managers, field directors, and other officials from twenty-first-century Democratic and Republican presidential campaigns, to make a powerful case for abolishing the antiquated and antidemocratic Electoral College. In Let the People Pick the President he shows how we can at long last make every vote in the United States countand restore belief in our democratic system.
