DAN EVANICK: Electoral system unfair
April 01, 2013 11:00 AM

I have to disagree with Mr. George Barto (“Let Electoral College alone,” March 21) because I do not agree with winner-take-all in this state.

If there are 2,001 people who vote Democrat and 2,000 who vote Republican, and the Democratic Party gets all of Pennsylvania’s electoral votes, I do not feel represented at all.

The way this country is being run certainly does not have any of my views being represented. I mean, none.

If all the states split the electoral votes on a percentage of the popular vote, would that not be fairer?

The way it is now, a presidential candidate can win the popular vote and lose the election. How is that fair?
