there are many assumptions in the explanation.
but what would you suggest as an alternative?

an electoral college?

Thinking it may be better if the animal kingdom were ruling.
They are more superior than we goofy humans.

The explanation is too simplistic. And it ignores the fundamental solution created by our Founders during the first years after our nation's birth.

A cute video of little value to the reality of today. No democracy uses the simplistic system of First past the Post
