Al Gore calls for the end of the Electoral College

SHARE

A dozen years after the razor close presidential race in 2000, Al Gore told Current TV that he now believes the presidency should be decided on the popular vote and not the Electoral College.

“I really do now think it’s time to change that. It’s always tough to amend the Constitution and risky to do so,” said Gore. “But there is a very interesting movement under way that takes it state by state, that may really have a chance of succeeding.”
