Asa Gordon on the Electoral System and disenfranchisement of African Americans

Asa Gordon has a website regarding his campaign to reform the electoral college.

I have never liked the winner take all system in the Electoral College. The state may have voted 51% for candidate A and 49% for candidate B, but candidate A takes all the Electoral votes.

The presidential candidates neither campaign in states where they feel fairly confident that they will get the majority nor in states where they think they don't have any chance.

I do like the Electoral college though. If some state is lack about fraudulent voting, it can only impact their Electoral votes, whereas, if it was decided on a national vote count, the fraudulent voting of one state would not be contained.
