You’ve just tuned in to the Daily Beat!

This week on the Daily Beat: We’re talking all things Electoral College with academic experts associated with the Save Our States Project–from how it came to be to why it’s still the most effective way to elect a president, and even what the U.S. might look like without it.

Dr. John C. Eastman is the Henry Salvatori Professor of Law and Community Service at the Chapman University. He’s also the founding director of the Claremont Institute’s Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence.

Today on the Daily Beat, Tuesday, January 10, 2017: Dr. John C. Eastman discusses arguments against the Electoral College and the odds of moving toward a popular vote electoral system.
