Via WFB, in a Friday event with Iowa reporters, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) lied to Iowa media about the Electoral College. She says every vote should matter in making the case for abolishing the system.
Iowa Press host David Yepsen is 100% right – rural America will get the shaft if the Electoral College is abolished. I wish he would have followed up more on this.
Under Article II of the Constitution, the Electoral College system, designed by our founders, protects the minority states from bullying and pushing around by the bigger states. The system ensures equal representation in a presidential election.
Why the Democrats want to abolish the Electoral College is simple. It would create one-party rule.
Getting rid of the electoral college also means creating a system where this map isn’t enough to elect a Republican. pic.twitter.com/oYTlcxstAB

Democrats though, already have a plan to make things worse for the United States.
Currently, there’s a far-left movement called the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
Under that deal, states that sign on would agree to give their state presidential electors to whatever candidate wins the national vote — even if that candidate loses the state.
Already, 12 Blue States and Washington D.C. have signed on. The agreement will only go into effect if states representing the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency sign on. As of last summer, they were short just 85 votes.
