Who is it pushing this? None other than the career politician and Liberal ideologue, Barbara Boxer, Senator from California.
Boxer is introducing a Bill to abolish the Electoral Collge.
The California Senator says that it is ‘unfair’ that Hillary won the popular vote and didn’t win the Presidency. Ditto Al Gore.
So, because Democrats lost twice, they need to ‘rig’ the system to make sure they win but do it in a way that appears to be ‘democratic’.
Disenfranchise half of the United States? Sure! As long as Democrats stay in power in perpetuity. (When you make an omelette, you gotta break a few eggs, right?)
“In my lifetime, I have seen two elections where the winner of the general election did not win the popular vote,” Boxer said in a statement. “In 2012, Donald Trump tweeted, ‘The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy.’ I couldn’t agree more. One person, one vote!”
She added that Clinton, whom she supported, is “on track to have received more votes than any other presidential candidate in history except Barack Obama.”
“The Electoral College is an outdated, undemocratic system that does not reflect our modern society, and it needs to change immediately,” she said.
Clinton is currently leading Trump by nearly a million votes, according to a Cook Political Report tracker of the national popular vote, but Trump won the Electoral College, leading the former secretary of State 290-232.
According to Pew, Clinton would be the fifth person to win the popular vote but lose the election, with the most recent being Al Gore in 2000.

The Electoral College protects us from demagogues. It ensures that each of the states has a say in the elections rather than just a handful of states with the greatest population.
Here’s why Boxer doesn’t give a rip about that:
She wants the leftist voters of California to be a major factor in determining the winner of the General Election.
(That’s more for our ClashDaily Editors, but maybe you readers are about to blow a gasket, too!)
Do you think she’s going to care about voters in Wyoming, Delaware or Nebraska?
Why would Presidential candidates care about less populous states if this Bill passes? They could just travel to these highly populated blue spots:
Hillary won in Cali by over 2 Million votes; that’s double the projected 1 Million votes that critics are citing to prove that she was ‘robbed’ of the Election.
She won the popular vote in the one largest state. Should we ignore the 31 states and over 60
Million votes that Trump received?
Boxer says, ‘YES!’
Should we allow small pockets of the country, mostly in coastal areas, to dictate the direction of the entire nation?
Boxer says, ‘YES!’
You know what, Barbara? The rest of America says, ‘HELL NO!’
