Al Gore: Electoral College Should Be ‘Eliminated’ [VIDEO]

Speaking at an event in Washington, D.C., this week, former Vice President Al Gore says he has changed his mind about the importance of the Electoral College. As one of two Democratic nominees this century to win the popular vote but lose the presidency due to the Electoral College system, Gore said, “I do think that it should be eliminated.” Gore added, “I think moving to a popular vote system is not without peril, is not without problems, it’s not a simple one choice is all good, the other is all bad. It’s a balancing act. But I think the balance has shifted, in my mind at least, and I think that we should go to a popular vote.”
