  • "We Should Keep the Electoral College". New York Times. December 25, 1991 - "In none of these contests was the victor's right to govern seriously challenged. But if only popular votes are counted, the loser in a race as close as those of 1960, 1968 and 1976 might well demand a recount. The Electoral College has saved us from such crises of legitimacy because giving the winner all of a state's electoral votes usually magnifies the popular vote winner's margin."
