Democrats know that if our presidential elections are based on the popular vote, heavily populated liberal states like New York and California will carry them to victory. With this in mind, they are waging a quiet campaign to end the Electoral College system put in place by our nation’s founders.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Truth catches up with the effort to abolish the Electoral College
Liberal academics and politicians have blasted the Electoral College with moaning, groaning, and gnashing of teeth. Over and over again, they attempt to rewrite the history of America’s unique presidential election process, claiming that it’s nothing but a relic of slavery.
It’s not that, of course. But some people believe that if they say something often enough, it becomes true.
Hillary Clinton’s call to eliminate the Electoral College has been widely reported, but less attention has been given to a former member of her husband’s presidential administration. Robert Reich recently urged listeners to “resist Donald Trump,” but also to “make sure our democracy doesn’t ever again elect a candidate who loses the popular vote.”
The best method of making that happen, Reich believes, is the National Popular Vote legislation that is pending before many state legislatures.
Most Americans have never heard of NPV, but the California-based group has been operating quietly behind the scenes for years.
This would be terrible for the country. Candidates would only campaign in highly populated areas. Many states would be completely ignored.
