Associate Professor Chad Kinsella discusses today's electoral college action
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. – Associate Professor of Political Science at Ball State University Chad Kinsella joins ABC57 news to discuss what the electoral college action today means.
Associate Professor Kinsella and ABC57’s Brain Conybeare discuss the definition of “faithless electors”, whether or not electoral votes unfairly water down voters’ power in high population states, and if President Donald Trump has any chance of overturning the outcome.
On whether or not electoral votes unfairly water down voters’ power in high population states and if it should be rid of, Associate Professor Kinsella explains to ABC57 how tough of a job it would be to do away with the electoral college.
Kinsella shares that not only would two-thirds of the House and Senate would need to agree, but three-fourths of the states – that equals up to about 38 states – would need to agree as well.
