I found it interesting that Posner's article I mentioned in the piece on the electoral college was written to support the Obama presidency, which means that the right can be sore losers: even when they truly lose.
My dislike for the electoral college isn't just because someone lost even though they had the larger share of the popular vote: it is because it is one of many anti-democratic aspects in US politics. None of these have been questioned in the US. One of the many reasons I made the Demexit was that the Democrats were far from democratic, or they would be screaming about the electoral college costing the election.
Anyway, the University of Sydney's (Australia) Electoral Integrity Project has duly noted the systemic problems in US elections.
Again, Left and Right should be upset.
But I don't think popular elections are truly popular in the states.
