Demographic shifts and their impact on future presidential elections

This article discusses a recent study on projected demographic shifts and their impact on future elections.  The article notes “One conclusion is that the country should be braced for repeats of what has happened twice in the past five presidential campaigns — a popular vote outcome different from the electoral college result. ”

I am in favor of abolishing the electoral college for exactly this reason.  The person with the most votes should be the winner!
