This is Tara Ross’s moment – an extended moment. She is one of the country’s foremost experts on the Electoral College. This institution was put in the spotlight in 2000. And again in 2016. Tara Ross is the author of “Enlightened Democracy: The Case for the Electoral College”; a children’s book, “We Elect a President: The Story of Our Electoral College”; and the forthcoming “The Indispensable Electoral College: How the Founders’ Plan Saves Our Country from Mob Rule.”
Jay asks her a series of questions: Why do we have it? Is it fair? What should be changed about it? And so on.
As Jay says at the end, Tara Ross is a superb teacher – clear as a bell. Think of this episode as Civics for All.
