CBS Sunday Morning‘s Mo Rocca: ‘The Electoral College has totally outlived its usefulness’

The final results of the popular vote aren’t in yet, although Obama’s chances are looking pretty good. Nate Silver says he’s ‘likely’ to win, so we’ll take his word for it. But for a while, things were looking up for Romney and Donald Trump was ranting away, bringing up the inevitable Electoral College vote debate.

Before Tuesday’s election, Mo Rocca, correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning and star of the PBS documentary Electoral Dysfunction, spoke to Mediabistro for its So What Do You Do? column and pondered what would happen if Romney won the popular vote: “When that happens, the Electoral College won’t just be suspended; it will blow up in a fiery ball. Republicans are not going to stand for it, and Democrats already got burned. So, finally, there will be unity in this country and people will say we’ve got to junk this thing. The Electoral College has totally outlived its usefulness.”
