Can a man lie elected president by
ininorily of lln1 popular votes?
Yes. In 1821 Andrew Jackson had
0 pluralitv of ."lOJirtO over d.
Adams, ami in 1888 ('rover < 'leve1
nid had a plurality of neara 100.000
over Rcn.ianiin Harrison. j
Is there any iustification for eleet'i
>n by Slales rather than by direct
Yes. Kledion by Slates is probably
fairer lo tue county as a whole.
Otherwise some limited section of the
Country would acquire undue influence.
