Dem Colorado Governor Would Sign Bill Circumventing The Electoral College

Just Fuck Me Now

  • Hatred of The Donald runs deep with Leftists. So much so the moron Governor of Colorado will give up his state's position as a swing state so no presidential candidate will ever campaign there again. Colorado Dems want the state to be totally fucked over by the big states.
  • In 2016 Los Angeles (Hollywood) and New York City gave Hillary Clinton her entire margin of victory in the popular vote. See my article Should Hollywood Select Our Presidents? - Popular vote vs Electoral College

On Sunday, the Democratic governor of Colorado, Jared Polis, stated that he would sign a bill allowing his state to circumvent the Electoral College, giving his state’s electoral votes to whomever won the national popular vote, thus allowing population heavy areas to determine the presidential election.
Polis told The Hill that he viewed the Electoral College as an “undemocratic relic,” adding, “I’ve long supported electing the president by who gets the most votes. It’s a way to move towards direct election of the president.”
If states whose electoral count totals 270 votes vote similar to the proposed Colorado bill, then they would combine their electoral votes and award them to the national popular vote winner, thus making that candidate the president. Currently, the number of electoral votes totaled in favor of such a position total 172, including 12 blue states and the District of Columbia. 11 more states have bills in their legislature similar to Colorado’s; their combined 89 electoral votes would put the proposal over the top.
John Koza, who chairs National Popular Vote, claimed, “Under a national popular vote, the 38 nonbattleground states long ignored by presidential campaigns will be powerful again, because no candidate can win 270 electoral votes and the White House without also winning the popular vote across all 50 states and the District of Columbia.”
