Most Democrats say eliminating the electoral college would improve democracy in the U.S., while more Republicans say term limits for Congress would bring improvement, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.
Among Democrats, 81% said electing a president by who received the most votes nationally would in some way improve democracy, as opposed to through the current electoral college system. That compared with 52% of independents and 32% of Republicans. In both the 2000 and 2016 presidential election, Democratic candidates won the popular vote but lost the electoral college.
