The latest movement is aimed at gutting the Electoral College and chooinge presidents by national popular vote.
Author Dan McLaughlin states in National Review Online, the fundamental system of electing presidents by 50 simultaneous statewide elections (plus D.C.) rather than a raw national popular vote has long served America well. It isn’t going anywhere, and it shouldn’t.
The Electoral College requires presidential candidates to appeal to the voters of a sufficient number of large and smaller states, rather than just try to run up big margins in a handful of the biggest states, cities, or regions with large populations.
Electing a President without the support of a majority of states would be destabilizing.
States that vote for the National Popular Vote have given away their vote to the most populous state in the compact. The end result is we will all be ruled by New York and California.
THIS IS WHAT IT MIGHT LOOK LIKE
To better explain, McLaughlin uses a hypothetical example: R candidate wins 48 states by identical 54-46 margins, D wins CA, NY & DC by 75-25 margins, D wins national popular vote. Who should win?

The Electoral College has one weakness, and that is the case of a tie.
28. All of that said, while the Electoral College resolves popular vote pluralities, we do face a realistic possibility in 2020 of facing the Electoral College’s real weakness: a tie decided by the House. Which would likely go to Trump, depending how the 2020 House races go. pic.twitter.com/Pjr3Rqbm7g

Nothing is a win unless the criminals are in prison, including that famous high school bully, & half assed halfback, Jersey Joe Biden, (who should be in federal prison if not executed in accordance with 18 USC Section 2381 Treason for accepting BRIBE from COMMUNIST CHINA OF ONE & HALF MILLION DOLLARS to alter U.S. POLICY).
If Pres Trump had done what Biden had done, he would have already been gone. Biden was also a co-conspirator in COLLUSION, (conspiracy), in securing with his pal, HILLIARY, BOGUS “information” FROM RUSSIAN SPIES to use against Trump, ….and then he conspired with Obama to corrupt the FBI & Department of Justice and Department of State. Hilliary has answered in response to questions about her failure to protect the FOUR AMERICANS WHO DIED AT BEN GHAZI; “What does it matter”…..Well, Hilliary, you monster, you are about to find out how much it matters……………………………
(ONE & HALF BILLION)
What the proponents of this garbage never mention is that no candidate got more than 50% of the vote. 52% of the voters cast their ballot for someone other than Hillary, so does she deserve to be President? More than willing to let her be President of California and NY. All the red counties in those two State could migrate to neighboring States and the blue parts could form their own socialist utopia. Win – Win.
