Argument: The electoral college favors a strong two-party system
- Gerard J. Fitzpatrick, Prof. of Politics Ursinus College Collegeville. "We Should Keep the Electoral College" (letter to the editor). New York Times. December 25, 1991 - "Abolishing the Electoral College would also undermine our already weak two-party system by encouraging third parties and independent candidates to seek the White House. Multiple candidates would fragment the electorate and make it difficult to forge a majority coalition, much less secure a mandate, thereby weakening the winner's capacity to govern."
