    And who votes in national elections? Could it be citizens of the nation?

    Your question was: So a Republican couldn't win New York or California?

    What does that have to do with anything I said or to which you were supposedly responding.

    I am just asking.

    Democrats cannot win the game so they want to change the rules. I guess cheating isn’t enough for them. Even when obama tells illegal aliens to vote they still lose.

    She can say it all she wants, but she has no
    Chance of getting it done.

    A constitutional change to the 12th amendment is required & the democrats do not have the numbers.

    The Electoral College of 538 people completely UNKNOWN to 99.999999 % of the U.S.voting citizens elect a president and vice president who represent a MINORITY of the voting citizens.It is the ONLY WAY the GOP has elected a president and vice president in the 21st century.We now have minority rule.Long PAST TIME to scrap the electoral college and have a real democracy.

    Unsupportable nonsense.
    Like in 1994 and 1996 - right?
    Every Presidential election, save one, was determined by the electoral college.

    They award by congressional district, and it’s not to the person with less votes

    States have their own constitutions to protect their citizens from the will of the majority.
    The USA is a union of states

    Let’s just throw out the Constitution and write some new rules allowing us to equalize incomes and wealth.

    What would the reason be in this plan?

    To destroy the rest of the United states like is being done in California and Illinois?

    Not logical

    If that were the case then no dems would ever be elected. The dems would have to run on actual policy and they suck at that.

    It’s so clear what’s happening, Democrats want power so badly they are willing to turn their backs on the American taxpayers just to win elections.
    We carry the burden (with our tax dollars) while they vote in laws that lean heavily in favor of them getting elected.
    Show me the Democratic candidate that wants to make America prosper, does not want to bring in illegals, lower the voter age to 16, and give away free stuff at our (the taxpayers expense) just to get elected!!
