END ELECTORAL COLLEGE? Nevada Passes New Legislation Pegging Electoral Votes to Popular Vote

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.22.19

Nevada is poised to become the next state to peg their electoral votes to the popular vote; passing new legislation Tuesday evening that would bypass the Constitutional process regarding presidential elections.

“The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor,” reports the Washington Times.

“Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote,” adds the article.

If signed into law by Nevada’s Democratic Governor, the state would officially join 14 other “jurisdictions” across the country that have pledged their delegates to the popular vote.

Supporters of the bill say the legislation will improve the Democratic process by allowing Americans to directly elect their president. Critics say the move is a direct attempt to subvert the US constitution following Hillary Clinton’s defeat to Donald Trump.

A handful of Democratic candidates -including Elizabeth Warren and Beto O’Rourke- have called for the elimination of the Electoral College; claiming the system is “outdated’ and based on historical slavery in the United States.

“I believe we need a constitutional amendment that protects the right to vote for every American citizen and makes sure that vote gets counted,” said Warren during a televised town hall event in March.

“We need to put some federal muscle behind that, and we need to repeal every one of the voter suppression laws that is out there,” she added. “Every vote matters, and the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting, and that means get rid of the Electoral College.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez openly blamed the United States ‘Electoral System’ for her difficulty in affording a Washington, DC apartment this week; saying the process “isn’t designed for working-class people to lead.”

The self-described Democratic Socialist -who is poised to become the youngest Congresswoman in US history- confirmed in a recent interview she was unable to afford an apartment in the nation’s capital until she receives her federal salary.

“There are many little ways in which our electoral system isn’t even designed (nor prepared) for working-class people to lead,” she tweeted. “This is one of them (don’t worry btw – we’re working it out!)”

“I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real,” she added.

President Trump slammed “very strange” Democrats on social media Tuesday evening; blasting liberal lawmakers for their desperate push to pack the Supreme Court, end the electoral college, and lower the voting age to 16.

“The Democrats are getting very ‘strange.’ They now want to change the voting age to 16, abolish the Electoral College, and Increase significantly the number of Supreme Court Justices. Actually, you’ve got to win it at the Ballot Box!” tweeted the Commander-in-Chief.

Leading Democrats -including Beto O’Rourke and Elizabeth Warren- called for the abolishment of the Electoral College this week while Speaker Pelosi threw her support behind lowering the national voting age to “capture kids” in high school.
