The thing that gets lost in the conversation about the Electoral College is how many Republicans it disenfranchises. GGw世界播

在关于选举人团的对话中,有一件事让人迷失,那就是它剥夺了多少共和党人的选举权。GGw世界播


In the 2016 presidential election there were more Republican voters in these two states: GGw世界播

在2016年总统大选中,这两个州有更多的共和党选民:GGw世界播

Than these 14 states combined: GGw世界播

比这14个州加起来还多:GGw世界播

In those two states, 7,303,344 votes were cast for Donald Trump. That’s over 7 million Republicans that have no say when it comes to the presidency, the one office that represents all Americans equally. The results aren’t final, but for the 2020 election it’s looking like the amount of votes for Trump in these states is going to be north of 8 million. GGw世界播

在这两个州,有7303344张选票投给了唐纳德·特朗普。在总统这个平等代表所有美国人的职位上,有700多万共和党人没有发言权。结果并不是最终结果,但2020年大选看起来特朗普在这些州的得票数将超过800万。GGw世界播


Right now the electoral college is obviously a partisan issue, (because what isn’t these days?) but it still doesn’t seem fair that all of these Republicans don’t get a say in who the president is, year after year, just because of the state they live in. GGw世界播

目前,选举人团显然是一个党派问题(因为如今还有什么不是呢?)。但是,仅仅因为他们所居住的州,所有这些共和党人年复一年都没有发言权,这似乎仍然是不公平的。GGw世界播


EDIT: A lot of people in the comments are taking this as my entire argument for why the electoral college should be abolished. I’m bringing this point up because people typically see the EC as a system that benefits Republicans, and hurts Democrats. While this has been true the past few election cycles, historically this isn’t always the case. This point is intended to illustrate the way in which Republicans can also potentially suffer under this system. The same forces that currently help Republicans under this system absolutely could change to help Democrats in the future with the right shifts in demographics. GGw世界播

编辑:评论中的很多人都把这作为我为什么应该废除选举团的全部理由。我之所以提出这一点,是因为人们通常认为欧盟是一个有利于共和党、伤害民主党的体系。虽然在过去的几个选举周期中确实如此,但从历史上看,情况并不总是如此。这一点旨在说明共和党人在这一制度下也可能遭受损失的方式。在这一体系下,目前帮助共和党人的力量绝对可以改变,以帮助民主党人在未来实现正确的人口结构转变。GGw世界播
