Senate Democrats Introduce Measure To Do Away With Electoral College


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 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.
