WHAT IF THE POPULAR VOTE WAS MAJORITY? SENATOR BARBARA BOXER SEEKS TO END ELECTORAL COLLEGE

One week after Donald Trump’s Presidential victory over Hillary Clinton, retiring California Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer filed Senate legislation that seeks to abolish the Electoral College.  Boxer took issue with Trump’s win since Clinton was shown to have won the popular vote by a margin of over one million votes.  Boxer said, “When all the ballots are counted, Hillary Clinton will have won the popular vote by a margin that could exceed two million votes, and she is on track to have received more votes than any other presidential candidate in history except Barack Obama…This is the only office in the land where you can get more votes and still lose the presidency.”

Boxer called the Electoral College an “outdated, undemocratic system that does not reflect our modern society.”  Boxer’s proposed bill would be an amendment to the Constitution, so it will be a long shot to pass in the heavily Republican Congress.  But that hasn’t stopped Senator Boxer from trying!

Boxer pulled out all the stops and called out Trump himself.  Boxer cited a couple of Trump’s tweets from 2012 where he called the Electoral College a “disaster.” Boxer used this to her advantage, saying, “I couldn't agree more. One person, one vote!”

Boxer’s bill raises the question, what if the popular vote actually decided our President?

The WANNA wants to hear from you!

Do you think it’s time for the Electoral College to go?
