Why don't the Democrats try and win the electoral college?

It would take a constitutional amendment to eliminate it and that's just not going to happen. I've heard and read all the arguments and yes, a constitutional amendment will be needed to effectively eliminate it.

It would make more sense for Democrats to start addressing and appealing to the needs of the nation as a whole, and not just thin slivers of land along the Left coast and small areas in the upper NE. It would be easier to win that way than some dead end effort to eliminate the electoral college.

Just try and win with the rules that are in place first.

The Democrats won 6 of the last 7 elections.  I'm guessing it's another political party the American people hate, not the Democrats.
