4.4 million Californians voted for Trump but they got zero electoral votes. It’s a stupid system. If we switched to a popular vote, Democrats and Republicans would both have to compete everywhere. The idea that a popular vote margin only comes from one place or one state makes zero sense — the popular vote is the whole country. Trump’s tweets aren’t fear mongering, he uses his Twitter account to attack specific people, companies and political opponents.

Democracy is pretty cool. We should try it some time. Voting rights, science policy, political communication and grassroots activism.
