Colorado Senate passes a bill favoring popular vote over the Electoral College. It passed along party lines in a 19-16 vote Tuesday, sending the bill to the state House for consideration.

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.

Breitbart:

The Democratic-majority Colorado state Senate passed a bill this week that would give the state’s electoral votes in presidential elections to the candidate who wins the popular vote instead of the Electoral College.

Colorado’s Senate passed the bill in a 19-16 vote Tuesday along party lines.

The bill would mandate that the state’s members of the Electoral College vote for the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote.

Under current state law, the state’s electoral college members cast their vote for the candidate who wins the election in Colorado.

The legislation, sponsored by state Sen. Mike Foote (D-Lafayette), would have allowed Colorado to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact with 11 other states and the District of Columbia.

“This really isn’t a red versus blue idea. This is about making sure that the president of the United States is elected by the entire nation, not just a handful of ‘battleground states’ that get to decide our presidential elections under the current system,” Foote said of the bill in a statement. “All of Colorado’s voters should be heard, regardless of whether or not we are considered a battleground state.”

If enough states sign onto the compact, it would change the outcome of presidential elections by awarding all electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote. 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.
