        The Electoral College

        In this video, Stacey Delikat reports on the Electoral College, specifically its importance in the 2008 election. Using the supporting lesson plan, students will understand the structure and operation of the Electoral College, as well as how it is not always an indicator of the popular will. They will also learn the importance of swing states to political campaigns, and will track the efforts of presidential candidates to win the support of swing state voters.
