Colorado Governor Would Sign Bill Circumventing The Electoral College


Colorado governor will sign a bill aimed at bypassing Electoral College.

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis: “I’ve long supported electing the president by who gets the most votes. It’s a way to move towards direct election of the president.”

The bill, known as the national popular vote interstate compact, was sponsored by state Sen. Mike Foote would require Colorado members of the Electoral College to cast their vote for the winner of the national popular vote.

Colorado is run by the loonie left from the governor to the legislature.

Daily Wire:

On Sunday, the Democratic governor of Colorado, Jared Polis, stated that he would sign a bill allowing his state to circumvent the Electoral College, giving his state’s electoral votes to whomever won the national popular vote, thus allowing population heavy areas to determine the presidential election.

Polis told The Hill that he viewed the Electoral College as an “undemocratic relic,” adding, “I’ve long supported electing the president by who gets the most votes. It’s a way to move towards direct election of the president.”

If states whose electoral count totals 270 votes vote similar to the proposed Colorado bill, then they would combine their electoral votes and award them to the national popular vote winner, thus making that candidate the president. Currently, the number of electoral votes totaled in favor of such a position total 172, including 12 blue states and the District of Columbia. 11 more states have bills in their legislature similar to Colorado’s; their combined 89 electoral votes would put the proposal over the top.

John Koza, who chairs National Popular Vote, claimed, “Under a national popular vote, the 38 nonbattleground states long ignored by presidential campaigns will be powerful again, because no candidate can win 270 electoral votes and the White House without also winning the popular vote across all 50 states and the District of Columbia.” More

This is crazy. Colorado is effectively volunteering to give up their representation in the federal government to the most populated states.

It totally ignores the will of  Colorado voters. So, hypothetically if 90% of the voters vote for a candidate that doesn’t win the popular vote, none of their votes matter. 

Colorado went from red to purple now on it’s on the way to blue! Why… Because all the people who moved to Colorado from California to escape liberal policies are now re-creating those same policies in Colorado. They never learn just destroy and move on!
