Mitt Romney's Former Chief Strategist Stuart Stevens: Let's Get Rid of the Electoral College So That the Republican Party Is Forced to Make a Play for Hispanic Voters in California, and White Urban Liberals Like Myself -- Or Die

We permitted straight-up leftists to control our party for 30+ years, and they're still largely in control.

THE CONSERVATIVE CASE FOR A PERMANENT PROGRESSIVE GOVERNMENTAL DOMINANCE

Without an Electoral College, the Republican Party would be forced to grow or die. Donald Trump is defining the Republican Party as a white grievance party, settling the score for the great injustices being wrought on America’s white middle class. That was just enough to win in 2016 with the decline in black turnout and the rise of third-party voters, but losing a campaign by 3 million votes should be a serious warning sign for anyone who cares about the health of a center-right party in America. The fastest decreasing demographic in the electorate is white voters without a college degree. In 1980 they were about 70% of the electorate, vs. 44% in 2016. This is the Trump base.
