Likely Prez Candidate Wants to Win Without Electoral College

By WND. Although Eric Holder hasn’t officially announced a run for the presidency in 2020, the former attorney general under Barack Obama says it’s time to abolish the Electoral College as the way to elect presidents. . .

In a separate tweet, supporting Colorado’s move to do eliminate the current method of choosing presidents, Holder said: “Change the Electoral College by having a state’s electoral votes go to the national popular vote winner – not the person who won the state. The candidate who gets the most votes – nationally – is elected. Real democracy.”

Holder’s comments came under immediate fire from Nick Searcy, the actor and director of the recent film “Gosnell.” . . .

Holder has said his decision on seeking the Democratic nomination for the White House would come sometime in March. (Read more from “Likely Prez Candidate Wants to Win Without Electoral College” HERE)


Colorado Governor Will Sign Bill Aimed at Bypassing Electoral College

By The Hill. Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) will sign a measure to award his state’s electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote, moving a countrywide coalition one step closer to circumventing the Electoral College.

In an interview Sunday, Polis called the Electoral College an “undemocratic relic” of the nation’s past, one he wants to see relegated to the dustbin of history.

“I’ve long supported electing the president by who gets the most votes,” Polis told The Hill. “It’s a way to move towards direct election of the president.”

Colorado will become the 12th state to join the national popular vote interstate compact. Those 12 states and the District of Columbia, which has also passed a popular-vote bill, account for 181 electoral votes, just under 90 shy of the 270 votes a presidential candidate needs to win the White House.

The compact will not go into effect until the coalition includes states that add up to 270 electoral votes or more. Once it does go into effect, states that are part of the coalition would award their electoral votes en masse to the candidate who wins the national popular vote.
