Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren just confirmed her stance on the Electoral College, ending the speculation.
While speaking at Jackson State University in Mississippi, Warren said, “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.”
Why Democrats Want This
There is only one reason Democrats are even considering this. That is because they know eliminating the electoral college would all but guarantee them the victory in federal national elections.
Democrats more or less own four of the six most populated states in the country, with liberal California leading the way.
That state alone has more than 10 million residents than the second-ranking state, which is Texas at 28.7 million.
America’s Founders understood the implications of giving any single state too much power. As such, they created the Electoral College for federal elections.
This gives larger states a more powerful voice, but it also ensures that advantage is not so much that the voices of the smaller states are not heard.
Without the electoral college, the citizens of less populated states like Wyoming, Montana, and West Virginia would be of little interest to candidates. Presidential candidates would spend all their time wooing voters in the top 30 or so states and would pay little attention to the others.
The Electoral College ensures that the votes from the entire country matter, not just the votes from California and New York.
It ensures that the individual elected to the office of the president of the United States represents all states collectively.
The fact Warren is even considering eliminating it makes her unfit for office. It is yet another example of a Democrat trying to chip away at the very foundation of this country and eventually just eliminating our Constitution altogether.
