Fast Focus: Undecided

-- JIM FOSTER, Kennewick

I have heard this argument about getting rid of the Electoral College in favor of the public count and I can't tell for sure which one I think is fairest. Electoral College tends to even the numbers so highly populated states don't overwhelm smaller ones in number count. If we truly believe "one man, one vote" and every vote counts then we go to the total of the individual votes and 50 point plus is the winner. The problem that worries me most is fraudulent counts. We don't have a really accurate count because there are just too many ways fraud can creep into the system.
