The Electoral College was created to  protect US citizens against mob rule. Mob rule is the control of a  lawful government system by a mass of people through violence and  intimidation. However, some Americans question the legitimacy of this  process. Pick one election where the outcome of the popular vote and the  electoral college vote differed to create an argument in favor of or  opposed to the use of the electoral college. List at least three valid  points to support your argument. Present you argument in a PowerPoint  presentation.
As you complete your presentation, be sure to:

Use speaker’s notes to expand upon the bullet point main ideas on  your slides, making references to research and theory with citation.
Proof your work
Use visuals (pictures, video, narration, graphs, etc.) to compliment  the text in your presentation and to reinforce your content.
Do not just write a paper and copy chunks of it into each slide. Treat this as if you were going to give this presentation live.
