One of the trending topics of the day surrounding this historical and controversial election is the subject of the electoral college popular vote. And of course there is talk about the ability to still try and deny the Presidency to Donald Trump by means of playing with this system. Well good luck with that. Donald Trump’s inauguration cannot come soon enough, God willing.
Electoral College Popular Vote
Enter Barbara Boxer
The Electoral College was established in 1791 in Article Two of the US Constitution to decide how America’s President is chosen. The law has been modified twice since then in both the 12th and 23rd Amendments, and this year’s protests may again lead to another change. Outgoing Senator, Barbara Boxer (Democrat) says she is “introducing a bill to abolish the Electoral College.” Specifically stating that, “The Electoral College is an outdated, undemocratic system that does not reflect our modern society, and it needs to change immediately.” (MSN.com, Democrat introducing bill to abolish Electoral College, November 15, 2016)
