The Electoral College has been under fire since Donald Trump became president-elect, and now Democrats in Congress are moving ahead to dismantle the “outdated, undemocratic system.” Last Tuesday’s surprise victory for Trump left many Democrats side-eyeing the Electoral College, as the 2016 election marked the second time in recent history that the popular vote failed to align with the actual electoral result. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-California) filed new legislation on Tuesday that would replace the Electoral College with the popular vote. "The Electoral College is an outdated, undemocratic system that does not reflect our modern society, and it needs to change immediately," she said in a statement. In 2012, Trump agreed with her. Then on Tuesday, the president-elect tweeted in defense of the institution. He has so far attained 290 electoral votes, surpassing the 270. Trump won the popular vote also...So why are they crying...Oh ya typical Democrat behavior....Duh. Even though you will hear in the mainstream media and from Democrats that Hillary won the popular vote, but sorry Democrats illegal voters don't count...For they are "illegal" and not citizens. If we could find out how many illegals voted in this election and also how many election fraud votes we're tallied as votes, Trump then likely won the popular vote in the election by a few million to be honest. Also if you want to get rid of the electoral college, you probably should of thought about that before the election took place on November, 8th. So per the Constitution President Trump won fair and square. The only reason I myself hate the electoral college, is because during an election it's an absolute headache...But the electoral college has been Constitutional law since Americas founding...So I personally support it. The reason why it exist in the first place, is because it was created to give states power in the election, for if one state votes for one candidate and if that state get's it's candidate, then how is it fair for the other states in the election. In all honesty Democrats the only grounds you control in Washington every election, is the areas of Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York, and the rest of the nation is red...Meaning this is why we have the electoral college. Also good luck in passing this when the House and Senate is now majority Republican with a Trump Presidency.
