It will only take a moment of your time, but the topic is vital to our nation's future.
A movement is growing, led by progressives—but supported by many well-meaning Americans – to change the way we elect our president. In effect, it seeks to do away with the Electoral College as devised by the Framers of our Constitution.
That's why Hillsdale College is conducting a National Survey on Presidential Selection.
By completing this survey and returning it to me as soon as possible, you will help Hillsdale College more clearly understand the views of mainstream Americans concerning this issue—views we will make available to policymakers and opinion leaders.

For most of our nation's history, the Electoral College, as devised by the Framers of our Constitution, was not controversial. Indeed, it was considered essential to preserving free and representative government.
But today, more than a dozen states have joined together in an attempt to undermine this constitutional bulwark of liberty.
This movement to undermine the Constitution has grown largely because of the failure of America's schools to provide young people with a proper grounding in American civics—too many Americans simply don't understand the importance of the Constitution, including the Electoral College, to liberty.
Because of this, Hillsdale College has expanded its educational mission on behalf of liberty nationwide, directly teaching millions of Americans in all 50 states.
These efforts, which aim to counter the Left's domination over most of our schools, include:
• Teaching millions of citizens nationwide through free online courses, such as "Constitution 101" and "The Great American Story: A Land of Hope;" • Reaching over 5.6 million households and businesses nationwide with Imprimis , Hillsdale's free digest of liberty; • Promoting constitutional education through social media outlets popular with young people; • Sending millions of pocket-size copies of America's founding documents to citizens and K-12 schools across America, as well as to members of our armed forces; and • Restoring excellence to K-12 education through Hillsdale's Barney Charter School Initiative, which launches and provides guidance to classical K-12 charter schools nationwide.
Your answers to the National Survey on Presidential Selection will help Hillsdale form the most effective strategy to educate millions of Americans about the importance of the Constitution to liberty—including the importance of the Electoral College.
And this is especially important in 2020, a critical year for America's future.
