Still fantasizing about the electoral college

Voltaire2

4. An electoral college majority of states could agree
to award their ec votes to the popular vote winner and the ec would be effectively abolished.

States with a total of 165 of the 270 votes needed have enacted the national popular vote compact.

1. They love the idea of NY and CA deciding the POTUS

Scratch a liberal and find a fascist.

Every time.

2. They obviously have not read the Constitution

Article 1, Section 10, Clause 1


No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.

6. Right

The post from DU advocated for a majority of states. There is already more than a majority of states who use the popular vote to determine the winner of the Electoral vote. Only 5 times in American history has there been a discrepancy between the winner of the popular vote and the winner of the Electoral vote.
