Homework Help: American History

Posted by Alex on Sunday, May 27, 2012 at 7:48pm.

One more question:

Why did the Progressive movement want the direct election of senators?

Senators elected indirectly made little effort to represent the people.

Progressives believed that having representatives elected by state legislatures was sufficient.

Progressives believed that direct election of senators gave more control of government to the people.

Progressives wanted to eliminate the Electoral College in all elections except presidential ones.

Thanks!
