The Electoral College has been a topic of defense after the 2000 presidential election, the 2016 presidential election, and perhaps again in 2020 depending on the outcome. Some have called the Electoral College archaic, some say it is undemocratic, and some states have moved to form a National Popular Vote compact.

On the Caffeinated Thoughts Podcast, Michael Maibach, Distinguished Fellow in America Federalism with Save Our States, discusses the history and importance of the Electoral College and why the National Popular Vote compact is dangerous with our host, Shane Vander Hart.
