Washington Times (external link) 28 minutes ago

American Civil Liberties Union Deputy Legal Director Cecillia Wang, who argued the case at the Supreme Court, said the case was reminiscent of a case last term in which the court limited the ability of immigrants to object to their detention.

But this Twitter response to him regarding the issue explains pretty handily why the idea is terrible - and the rationale for why the Founders decided the electoral college was a way to proportionally decide elections based on population and protect from tyranny at the same time.
