Warren: I’ll Be The “Last American President Elected By Electoral College”

December 4, 2019   |   by James G. Dalton

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted a short clip of her speaking at a townhall event over the weekend, indicating that she would eliminate the Electoral College and allow the popular vote to choose the president in 2024, basically implying a massive overhaul of the US Consitution would be coming if she became president, reported The Daily Caller. “My goal is to get elected—but I plan to be the last American president to be elected by the Electoral College. I want my second term to be elected by direct vote,” she tweeted.

Warren told dozens of people at an Iowa town hall event that she is ready to “get rid of” the Electoral College and replace it with a popular vote.

“I just think this is how a democracy should work,” she told the townhall. “Call me old-fashioned, but I think the person who gets the most votes should win.”

Warren has mentioned before that she would abolish the Electoral College if she became president. There’s even a section on her website that says, “Presidential candidates should have to ask every American in every part of the country for their vote. Add your name if you agree: It’s time to abolish the Electoral College and to have a national popular vote.”

“Everyone’s vote should count equally — in every election — no matter where they live.

But right now, presidential candidates don’t even go to places like Mississippi, where I was last night, because it’s a deep red state. They also don’t go to deep blue states like California or Massachusetts because they’re not presidential battlegrounds.

I believe presidential candidates should have to ask every American in every part of the country for their vote, not just a few random states that happen to be close,” Warren’s website said further.

Her critics were quick to respond and bashed the unfair election system that has elected Democrats for decades:

    She has got to be completely insane, Does America want only about 2 states electing our leaders & 48 states being left out of having any say in the process.

    Ms.Warren, first off every sane American would have to be comatose on election day for you to win. Furthermore, it would be nice if you read the Federalist papers to see that the electoral college was instituted so small states, i.e. Rhode Island, would have the same representation as say California. So you Ms. Warren claim to be smarter then the founding fathers? Throw the smaller states under the bus of the larger states. Does that seem fair? Of course not but you don’t care about them so long as you get elected. Your a low grade person Pocahontas who is also a liar and a narcissist.

    There she goes again, the woman living in fantasy land making promises that would only come true in fantasy land. Too bad for Warren we live in the real world, not some make believe world she has conjured up in her disturbed mind.

    Elizabeth Warren knows why our founding fathers had the wisdom to create the Electoral College. She does not want to accept it. The Democrats want to FUNDAMENTALLY change laws to fit into what they want.

    Der lady, If there is a god or just true justice in the universe, YOU will be the last American elected president about the time the Martian colony sues for independence! Why don’t you go rule somewhere you can’t hurt anyone. Maybe a nice dwarf planet like Pluto. The seasons are a bit long, but you could win every election. (At least until a sane person should decide to take up residence.)
