What? I can hear you saying. Is he nuts? How can the Electoral College be unconstitutional when it’s in the freakin’ Constitution? OK, maybe not the whole thing, but the “winner take all” aspect of elector allocation might be in violation of the “Equal Protection Clause” of the Fourteenth Amendment. And since the 14th was ratified after the original document, it would take precedence. This rather unusual interpretation of things came to me today and, not really to my surprise, it seems that I’m not the first to think so. As witness a Google search on the subject.
What do you geniuses think?
(Mod, feel free to move this to “Great Debates” if you feel it appropriate, but if this isn’t an “Elections” thread, I don’t know what is.)
