TRUMP: ‘The Electoral College is FAR BETTER for the USA,’ Protects ‘Smaller States and the Midwest’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.21.19

President Trump threw his full support behind the Electoral College this week after multiple Democrats -including Elizabeth Warren, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Beto O’Rourke- called for the abolishment of the uniquely American process.

“Campaigning for the Popular Vote is much easier & different than campaigning for the Electoral College. It’s like training for the 100 yard dash vs. a marathon. The brilliance of the Electoral College is that you must go to many States to win. With the Popular Vote, you go to just the large States – the Cities would end up running the Country. Smaller States & the entire Midwest would end up losing all power – & we can’t let that happen. I used to like the idea of the Popular Vote, but now realize the Electoral College is far better for the U.S.A.,” posted Trump on social media.

Sen. Warren abruptly called for the abolishment of the College during a town hall event Monday; urging a Constitutional Amendment that would switch the country’s election process towards a simple popular vote.

IT’S OFFICIAL: Hillary Clinton Moves to ‘ABOLISH’ the Electoral College

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called for the official end of the Electoral College this week; saying the United States needs to “improve and protect” our elections for future generations.

The former Secretary of State vented her frustration with the American election system on social media, saying “We need to improve and protect our elections, from instituting paper ballot backups to repairing the Voting Rights Act, getting secret money out of politics, and—you won’t be surprised to hear my support for this—abolishing the Electoral College.”

Clinton’s comments echo similar statements she made in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election; blaming her disastrous defeat to Donald Trump on the Electoral College, Russia, Facebook, Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, the FBI, James Comey, sexism, racism, the DNC, and more.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke threw his support behind the Democratic Party’s recent push to abolish the Electoral College Tuesday; saying there’s “a lot of wisdom in that” following the results of the 2016 race for the White House.

O’Rourke was speaking with supporters after leaving Penn State when he was asked if he agreed with fellow Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren in her efforts to end the uniquely American political process.

“Last night, Elizabeth Warren suggested getting rid of the Electoral College. Is that an idea you would support?” asked one reporter.

“I think there’s— there’s a lot to that,” O’Rourke fired-back. “You had an election in 2016 where the loser got three million more votes than the victor. It puts some states out of play all together… I think there’s a lot of wisdom in that.”
