Warren Targets the Electoral College for Takedown

In the wake of Colorado joining the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, Democratic presidential hopeful Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) is throwing her support behind Left wing agenda to abolish the Electoral College system. According to The Hill, Warren told attendees at a Mississippi town hall on Monday that “every vote matters.” She couched it in terms of candidates ignoring such states as California and Mississippi and focusing on the battleground states, such as Florida, Texas, and Virginia. Similar pushes to abolish the system put into place by our Founding Fathers to prevent mob rule have also been attacked by socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who has already called for a “reassessment” of the Electoral College. Memo to the Left: we’re not fooled by your faux populism. No Electoral College means the most populous states (mostly blue) decide the president; smaller states (largely rural red) get the shaft. Thanks but no thanks.

Here’s more from The Hill…

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Monday called for abolishing the Electoral College and moving to a national popular vote for presidential elections.

Warren, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for president, said during a CNN town hall in Mississippi that her view “is that every vote matters.”

“And the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting and that means get rid of the Electoral College,” she added.

Warren added that she wanted to push the message in Mississippi because, during a general election, “candidates don’t come to places like Mississippi” or other non-swing states.”
