Sol Wachtler’s essay on the Electoral College was spot on the nose [“A moment for the Electoral College?” Opinion, Aug. 15].

Witnessing this election cycle with the endless “working the ref” tactics of blaming the media for bad news and slipping polls, a bulwark against demagoguery is clearly necessary.

The only real problem with the college is the cynical and destructive gerrymandering of congressional districts. We need a non-partisan, professional body to draw these all-important districts, nationwide, so they make some kind of sense.
