Interesting how age seems to make politicians more myopic; and more indulgent of their whims. Boxer’s bill presupposes that the popular vote will always favor the democrats.However, eliminating the Electoral College will change the dynamics of general elections which may not work in favor of democrats. It could however be a good thing for the country.
Eliminating electoral votes also eliminates so called “blue states”, “red states”, “battleground states”, “swing states”, etc.. It will also extend the time between poll closings and election results because every vote will have to be counted and every close count will be challenged.
Thank God Boxer is leaving and is not likely to get enough support to make her fantasy a reality.
