The Senate Democrats introduced a constitutional amendment to abolish the Electoral College.
A constitutional amendment must be proposed by a two-thirds supermajority in both the House and Senate and requires ratification by 38 states. So thankfully it won’t become law anytime soon.
They can’t win, so they want to change the rules.

A group of Democratic senators on Tuesday introduced a measure to do away with the Electoral College, picking up on a talking point that has caught fire in the 2020 Democratic presidential field.
The measure serves as companion legislation to one put forward in the House by Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., and counts one presidential candidate — Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York — among its co-sponsors. Democratic Sens. Dick Durbin of Illinois, Dianne Feinstein of California and Brian Schatz of Hawaii also sponsored the resolution.
The Electoral College has been the focus of renewed Democratic criticism in the wake of President Trump’s 2016 win. While he defeated Hillary Clinton in the electoral vote, he lost the popular vote by 2.9 million ballots. More
The Electoral College is what makes us a republic. Many people think we are a democracy, but we are not. The Electoral College is to make each state’s collective vote equal to that of all the other States.
Any state that wants to allocate their electoral votes by the national popular vote totals, shows that they are delusional and very dangerous to boot.
The Dems know they can’t win by the established rules and so they are trying to change them in an attempt to power-grab.

Lousy attempt to grab votes for Dems from uniformed voters. I don’t think you can get 60 votes in the Senate and I’ll wager that more than 13 states will NOT ratify that amendment.. It’s a safe bet so I’ll put anything on the line how about you @SenFeinstein ?

The more ridiculously destructive propoals they introduce, the more they expose themselves for who and what they are.

It has to be voted for by all states and the measure needs two thirds majority vote. It will never happen not in my life time or any democrats alive today!
