WASHINGTON (CBS SF) – Nearly one week after Donald Trump was elected president over Hillary Clinton, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-California) introduced legislation to abolish the Electoral College and have presidential elections decided on the popular vote.

 

“In my lifetime, I have seen two elections where the winner of the general election did not win the popular vote,” Boxer said, referring to Clinton’s Electoral College loss last week and Al Gore’s loss to George W. Bush in 2000.

 

“This is the only office in the land where you can get more votes and still lose the presidency. The Electoral College is an outdated, undemocratic system that does not reflect our modern society, and it needs to change immediately. Every American should be guaranteed that their vote counts,” Boxer went on to say.

 

Amending the U.S. Constitution to abolish the Electoral College. Changing the Constitution requires the approval of two-thirds vote of both the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, along with the ratification of 38 state legislatures within seven years.

 

The senator also pointed out Trump’s changing stance on the Electoral College, noting he called it a “disaster for democracy” after President Barack Obama defeated Mitt Romney in 2012.

Corn holers are afraid of losing redistricting. Another good idea is to allow voting at any polling booth regardless of where you are in the nation. This will correct this nonsense of limiting booths in minority areas and let minorities vote in majority booths where there are less traffic lines. Wouldn't want to discriminate would we?


Sounds like you are choking on your own ideology here? Drowning in your own denial? great. rescue yourself this time.

Congress has agreed to the definition, so that is what we are.

Ha ha ha ha ha. Thank you. Mind over matter nonsense as legislated into rule of law. Time for an overhaul of what was allowed for the last century of educated idiots trying to bury self evident results with fictional accounts of could have been naturally different.

 

Pay up shintao, your free ride is over. your free alternative, stop taking another breath as you will release us from your eternal hell in this atmosphere..

 

Not my fault you picked that side to defend hyperbole on intellectually and ignoring your instinctive positioning when adapting in the moment here..
