I am posting this because there way too many people that think I hate everything that our president does….that is not accurate…..just as I did not agree with everything Obama did…..
I have been a staunch opponent of the Electoral College for many years….I really started bad mouth this archaic practice after the 2000 election.
Recently Trump has made a comment about the EC……a comment that I can agree with……
Pres, Trump argued that he’d rather see the presidential election be determined based on the popular vote than the current Electoral College system, claiming it would be “much easier to win.”
“They also like to always talk about [the] Electoral College. Well, it’s an election based on the Electoral College. I would rather have a popular election, but it’s a totally different campaign,” Trump said during an interview with “Fox & Friends.”
“It’s as though you’re running — if you’re a runner you’re practicing for the 100-yard dash as opposed to the one mile,” he continued. “The Electoral College is different. I would rather have the popular vote, because it’s — to me, it’s much easier to win.”
Given his track record lately he may change his tune next week….but for now I can agree with what he has said…
May your day be good and safe…..chuq
