David A. Hopkins is associate professor of political science at Boston College. The Electoral College has been around since 1804 when the 12th amendment was ratified and it’s still in place today. Some believe it to be an outdated system, but others see it as the only way to fairly represent small states and keep big cities from making decisions for the entire country. David Hopkins talks about his book, Red Fighting Blue, and explain how the Electoral College has changed American politics.
