Author of the political thriller "Faithless Elector", James McCrone spoke to students in a political science class about the Electoral College, the subject of his novel. McCrone researched the subject extensively in order to keep his books as plausible as possible. He says what appealed to him about the subject was how easily it could be manipulated.

"There are weaknesses in the way the Electoral College is set up," says McCrone. "There are plausible ways you could skew the election. It's ripe for mischief."

The professor of the class McCrone spoke to, Rob Alexander, has also studied the Electoral College extensively over the years.
