How the Electoral College Empowers Minorities—M.A. Taylor | American Thought Leaders

If America abolished the electoral college and opted for a popular vote, "you would need zero minorities to win…You could win the presidency with only white people," says M.A. Taylor, the director of “Safeguard: An Electoral College Story.” There are growing calls to eliminate the electoral college and criticisms that it’s racist, but what many do not realize is that the electoral college actually amplifies the voices of ethnic minorities in America, Taylor says. In this episode, Taylor explains what the electoral college actually does, common misconceptions around it and what would happen if it no longer existed. This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.
