Our democracy’s greatest threat isn’t Trump — it’s the Electoral College

The Hill ^ | 03/07/2023 | PAUL GOLDMAN AND MARK J. ROZELL
A simplistic 18th century math formula, not the latest complex Big Tech algorithm, is the greatest growing threat to our democracy. This formula got scratched out using a quill pen in 1787. Then it was used in 1789 to elect George Washington as our first president. This enduring presidential algo is found in Article II, Section I, of the U.S. Constitution. The term “Electoral College” doesn’t appear there. But the basic math does. Each state has two senators. This equals two electoral votes, regardless of population. In addition, a state gets representatives in Congress based on population. Each representative equals...

Faux News ^ | February 16, 2023 11:00am EST | Chuck DeVore
Pundits and politicians on the political left have been pushing to overturn the Electoral College—the way America chooses presidents—by enacting a national popular vote interstate compact. Now, with 15 reliably blue states and the District of Columbia in agreement, and action pending in an additional six states, including Florida and Texas, the national popular vote is on the verge of reality. […] It seems simple enough. Robert B. Reich, former Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton, writes that “…the entire process of selecting our president… threatens the foundation of our democracy.” Reich goes on to note that, “In 2020,...

Democrat Rep. Jaime Raskin on Sunday called the Electoral College a ‘danger to the American people’ during an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan asked Raskin about the January 6 Committee and the Electoral Count Reform Act that just passed both chambers of Congress as part of the $1.7 trillion Omnibus bill. “The act also raises the threshold for members of Congress to object to electoral votes and makes it harder for state legislatures or governors to ignore the popular vote when certifying Electoral College votes.” NBC reported. Raskin slammed the US Constitution on...

Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the electoral college “has become a danger not just to democracy, but to the American people.” Partial transcript as follows: MARGARET BRENNAN: This is an incredible body of work, all coming to this conclusion now, what do you think Americans at home need to know? RASKIN: It’s a story of some real villainy and some real danger to democracy, but also of real heroism and commitment to American democratic freedom. And with democracy under attack all over the world, like with Putin invading Ukraine, and the Ukrainian people...

WASHINGTON — A top House Republican’s little-known past job working with Democrats to change US elections and choose presidents by popular vote threatens to upend his bid to rise in the GOP ranks, The Post has learned. The three-way House Republican whip race between Reps. Tom Emmer (R-Minn.), Jim Banks (R-Ind.) and Drew Ferguson (R-Ga.) is expected to be the only contested GOP leadership vote and will be settled by secret ballot about a week after the Nov. 8 midterm elections, which Republicans are favored to win. Emmer, who is regarded as the most moderate option, is overseeing House GOP...

Former President Donald Trump blasted Democrats and "RINOS" (Republicans In Name Only) for hypocrisy regarding the process of certifying Electoral College votes.A bipartisan group of U.S. senators on Wednesday introduced two bills aimed at reforming a long-standing election law that entered the spotlight after 2020 presidential election.One bill aims to clarify the role of the vice president and stating he or she has no discretion over the results. Trump, saying there had been voter fraud in several key battleground states, had insisted Vice President Mike Pence could halt certification of the Electoral College results that gave Joe Biden the victory."So...

Rep. Raskin Wants the Jan. 6 Committee to Recommend Abolishing Electoral College: Report

Mediaite ^ | 6/6/22 | Katherine Higgins
Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) has pushed colleagues on the House Select Committee investigating Jan. 6 to support ditching the Electoral College, Axios’ Jonathan Swan and Hans Nichols reported Sunday. According to the report, Raskin has argued in multiple conversations with committee members that the panel should recommend abolishing the Electoral College to “protect future presidential elections against the subversion that [President Donald Trump] and his allies tried to pull off in 2020,” Swan and Nichols write. In January, Raskin stated in an interview on ABC’s This Week that he opposes the Electoral College — personally preferring a national popular vote...

GOP Candidate’s STATE-LEVEL Electoral College Idea Could Help Rural Areas — and Kill Vote Fraud

In 2019, the Democrat-controlled Colorado Senate joined a liberal-state pact designed to eliminate our nation’s Electoral College system. Now a Colorado gubernatorial candidate is, far from just mounting a defense against this, taking the offense: He has proposed instituting an electoral college within his state. It’s an idea that not only could help rural Centennial State counties, but also could virtually neutralize vote fraud’s effectiveness. The Washington Examiner reports on the story: One candidate in Colorado’s gubernatorial election has called for eliminating its one-person, one-vote approach in favor of a state-level electoral college…. Greg Lopez, a Republican candidate for Colorado’s...

Wild Hypocrisy in Roe-Related Attacks on Electoral College

Amidst the general wailing and gnashing of teeth over a Supreme Court ruling expected to overturn Roe v. Wade, one attack stands out as especially hypocritical. That is the contention that the Court is illegitimate because the presidential election process is insufficiently democratic. A columnist for the Los Angeles Times claims “the reversal of Roe further undermines majoritarian rule and feeds the image of the justices as nothing more than partisans in black robes.” In a piece labeled “the real culprit,” The New Republic lectures its readers to “Blame the Electoral College.” Yet, what the Court is poised to do...

George Washington and the Electoral College

Illinois Review ^ | February 4, AD 2022 | John F Di Leo
Reflections on the anniversary of the first Electoral College balloting... On February 4, 1789, the Electoral College met and their votes were tallied, and it was unanimous. All 69 electors (representing the ten states that participated in that first presidential election) named George Washington as their first choice. General Washington was therefore first and only President of the United States who could be said to have been elected unanimously. It makes sense. The General had served his home state of Virginia for twenty years as a state legislator, including national service at the end of that period as one of...

Republicans who falsified Michigan electoral college vote under scrutiny from Congress, Attorney General

Falsified documents claiming Michigan’s electors voted for former President Donald Trump were given by state election officials to a congressional panel investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 riot. Sixteen Republicans, including the current co-chair of the Michigan Republican Party, signed certificates asserting they were Michigan’s presidential electors and sent the illegitimate documents to the National Archive. The unofficial documents were part of a failed Republican strategy to overturn President Joe Biden’s victory in battleground states, which is under new scrutiny from a U.S. House panel and the Michigan Attorney General’s office. Each political party nominates its own slate of electors, but...

It should have been obvious during the few moments of lucidity from Joe Biden’s weird ranting lately: the electoral college is in the Democrats’ crosshairs now that the GOP has taken election integrity more seriously and the Dem administration that was supposed to save the country from Trump has turned out to be such a massive failure. Democrat future presidential wins look as likely as Democrat midterms wins.So how can we tell Democrats will again turn to the unpopular tactic of attacking the electoral college out of desperation? Because Biden himself told us recently.“It's about who gets to count the...

Democrats Have Second Thoughts About Destroying Electoral College
08/19/2021 5:39:09 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | August 19, 2021 | Trent England
A campaign to nullify the Electoral College has come to a screeching halt. For more than a decade, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC) added states until reaching nearly three-quarters of its goal. Yet now it is moving backward, with states that nearly joined in the past rejecting it with large bipartisan majorities. Of 29 NPVIC bills introduced in 16 states, just two received a hearing, and those were voted down with Democrats and Republicans unified in opposition. Rather than a bump in the road, this may be a dead end. The National Popular Vote movement began in 2006,...

In Response to DC Statehood: States Should Breakup Electoral College Votes (ie. Nebraska / Maine)
04/25/2021 11:04:06 AM PDT · by ArizonaStateLine · 53 replies ^ | 3/25/21 | Arizona State Line
Democrats want DC as a 51st State because DC votes overwhelmingly Democrat. In response to this maneuver, Conservative State Legislatures should consider reallocating Electoral College Votes so that "Winner does not take all" (just like in Maine and Nebraska, see article). This will fix the serious problem of Large Cities dominating the way a State votes. Here in Arizona, Phoenix took our State. Many more States are about to fall to the same fate.

Radical Democrat Priorities in Biden’s First 100 Days: Packing Courts, Amnesty, Reparations, Federalizing Elections, DC Statehood, Banning Electoral College

Breitbart ^ | April 15, 2021 | WENDELL HUSEBO
The Democrats have proposed, within President Joe Biden’s first 100 days, radical initiatives contrary to Biden’s “back to normalcy” campaign sold to the American people. Accordingly, the Democrats have introduced the following radical initiatives: Packing the courts, amnesty, reparations, federalized elections, D.C. statehood, and banning the Electoral College. These radical ideas and proposals run counter to what Biden said during his announcement speech for president: The American people want their government to work, and I don’t think that’s too much for them to ask. I know some people in D.C. say it can’t be done. But let me tell them...

The founders created the electoral college to make sure that large states did not dominate small ones in presidential elections, that power between Congress and state legislatures will be balanced, and that there would be checks and balances in the constitutional system. This spring, numerous candidates for president expressed support for either abolishing or changing the Electoral College and today House Democrats have introduced a resolution to abolish the electoral college. Twitter LinkThe National Archives reports that over the past 200 years more than 700 proposals have been introduced in Congress to reform or eliminate the Electoral College – without...

Celebrities Urge GOP Electors To Deny Trump Electoral College Win High-profile actors and musicians are joining calls to deny Donald Trump the 270 electoral votes he needs to clinch the presidency, urging members of the Electoral College to choose someone more qualified in a video posted on YouTube Wednesday. “As you know, our Founding Fathers built the Electoral College to safeguard the American people from the dangers of a demagogue, and to ensure that the presidency only goes to someone who is ‘to an eminent degree, endowed with the requisite qualifications,’” “The West Wing” star Martin Sheen said.
