Book Description

Describes a new plan to improve the current election system under which every voter gains and no state loses its current Electoral College benefits, which has a chance to be introduced in the form of a constitutional amendment.

Provides explanations of why the National Popular Vote plan may violate the Equal Protection Clause from the Fourteenth Amendment and why the underlying claim of the plan is no more than wishful thinking of its originators and proponents.

Analyses what the Founding Fathers overlooked and describes a logical mistake that they made in the initial design of the presidential election system.

Describes seven puzzles of the Twelfth Amendment embedded in presidential election rules whose application may produce weird election outcomes.
