Examining The Movement To Reform The Electoral College | NBC News NOW

  • Come to think of it, JFK would not be killed in Dallas, Texas on Nov 22, 1963 if not for the Electoral College System. He went to California, then Florida and finally Texas. All important battleground states for the upcoming 1964 presidential elections

  • Trump could say that he is not leaving, he is not conceding.However, according the Twentieth Amendement to the Constitution, the candidate with the most electoral votes ( Biden, 306-Trump, 232) becomes president at 12:00 p.m. on january 20. The current president's term is therefore over on that day, just before noon. And all of the allegiance of the government, of the military, of the civil service, switches to Joe Biden, the winner of the November 3 election, and Donald Trump will become a private citizen, regardless of anything Donald Trump does. kgworld.info/wiki/video/lpiIfLyZnWWn04s

  • Trump and his cohorts are the ones that are seriously BROKEN. I hope, with time, they'll eventually, be consigned to the dustbin not history, where they rightly belong. It will take time though, but the Democrats, must be smarter than what they're now and give it back to the trash GOPs ounce for ounce and pounds for pounds. They (the Democrats) are just too docile, too soft and too unassuming for these TUGS and MISCREANTS in the Republican Party

  • The guy from Venn Therapeutics (4:19) seems rather confused. What is "consistent" about an uneven system? I'm not even American but can understand the problems. The arcane Electoral College system of 538 apportioned states' electors is democratically flawed. It was really set-up to isolate the president from the people and retain or expand the power of former slave-holding states. It gives a distinct 5% advantage to Republicans. There will be no real reform of anything until " Grim Reaper" Mitch McConnell has no power, or his nickname makes an appearance and removes for good this obstructive, backward-looking individual. Why stop at the Electoral College? Stop voter suppression; reform Senate representation; change the rules on judges -silly me, I thought judges would be impartial rather than partisan- and gerrymandering. Get these right and you might start to resemble a form of democracy.

  • Why did the Founding Fathers create the Electoral College ? The framers created the Electoral College, because they didn't trust the people to make electoral decisions on their own. They wanted the president chosen by what they thought of as "enlightened statesmen". What are 3 major flaws in the electoral college? Three criticisms of the College are made: It is “undemocratic;” It permits the election of a candidate who does not win the most votes; and. Its winner-takes-all approach cancels the votes of the losing candidates in each state. Get rid of the 12th amendment it's undemocratic .

Even California went Red , must be why the evil Dems are been quite quiet for a change .. thank Goodness Joe didn’t win or we’d all be heading to China on a boat. The fact the DemonRats cheap and win by election fraud, they should be disqualified and then arrested. They got caught because they rigged it So much, they couldn’t hide it. Oh and when did MSMFakery call elections official results, must be a new Dem way to help with their agenda etc. I will say if they allow the fraudsters to win , I’d never have that corrupt China puppet Biden for President. I’m starting to pack up,, because the demonic left always use corruption & somehow they get away with it. They are very dishonest & they very deceiving but they don’t deceive me because I’m awake & see thru all their lies. I don’t take MSM lies as news. I do my own research in my search for truth. In fact I don’t even own a brainwashing 📺 and haven’t for at least 12-14 years. Most watch their news from 📺 and have no clue what’s really going on. With that said Trump won with a landslide as was expected theSatanists are not going to get away with their scam, this time.

  • People don't understand that without the Electoral College many of the less populated states would have never have agreed to the union that became U.S.A. . Without the Electoral College the whole country would be ruled by the west and east coast large cities, leaving the other states (who have different concerns) unrepresented. I always considered the Electoral College a major flaw in our system until I both studied it's purpose and saw it work in action. It serves us well.

    Silent RiderSilent Rider8 күн мурун
    • @Silent Rider I agree with that premise, but I like the idea of each state splitting their electors based on the popular vote in that state. If a state has 10 electoral votes, then if 30% of the state votes for candidate A, then 3 of their electoral votes would be cast for candidate A. This preserves the electoral college giving smaller states a say, while giving individual voters in each a say as well.

  • Consider this, many states take out more money from the tax pool then what they put in. In other words many states are in a long term dependence on the system. Some as much as decades. Sure populations is a metric but so is the ability of Congressional Senators and Representatives to be able to create an economic system that benefits the whole. Obviously given the chance many take from the system and don't look back. Those are political people that are embedded in the system re-elected for decades too.

  • Network news reporters are now no different than travel reporters, only report news approved by your controllers. The problem is not the Electoral College, the problem is that the Dominion ballot box riggers screwed up big time, creating vote totals of over 100% of the voters in too many election districts. The Smartmatic software (whose CEO is on Biden's transition team) screwed up and failed to erase Trump votes every time as it switched those votes to Biden. That real glitch explains the record turnout. We have come a long way from over 100 years ago when Tammany Hall's instruction to its NYC Democratic loyalists was: "Vote Early And Vote Often!"

What a state is, is a failed, antiquated attempt at creating a little Country all it's own before consolidating under 1 nation. There literally isn't even a need to have states, ffs. Counties may address things at a local level more apropros to the needs of the vicinity, but States always include rural, suburban, and urban centers. They're basically useless.
