    Janine is drawing a parallel to the populist movement to eliminate the Electoral College system of voting in Presidential Elections. Very similar to how the 17th was couched as the antidote to the poison that the 16th amendment injected into Federalism, elimination of the Electoral College portends to solve a perceived problem of unfair elections. While there is a demonstrated tendency for candidates to focus their campaigns on states yielding the greatest Electoral prize, the proposed solution brings US much closer to a system of mob rule and places another nail in the coffin for Federalism.
