The horror!!! Fox's Megyn Kelly and regular Chris Stirewalt fearmonger over the possibility of states ditching the Electoral College and using the popular vote to determine our elections instead. God knows the world is going to come to an end of we let too many of those "blah people," instead of those real "Murkins" out in the rural areas have an influence on our presidential elections.
From Fox's blog: States Quietly Sign Onto Plan to Change Election System:
Nearly a dozen states have quietly signed onto a plan to ditch the Electoral College and instead, award the White House to whoever wins the popular vote.
The National Popular Vote agreement would take effect if states that represent 270 electoral votes commit. New York has most recently joined the efforts, bringing the number of states to 10 plus the District of Columbia. Altogether, they represent 165 electoral votes.
Without the Electoral College, Fox News’ Chris Stirewalt said we would have had a whole different trajectory of presidents. If presidents are selected through the popular vote, he said that campaigns will focus on maximizing turnout in urban centers. He said the “plan is to subvert the will of the Constitution and the founders.”
“This is disempowering to rural America and empowering to urban America,” he said.
We always knew they felt this way. It's not all that often that one of them actually says it out loud.
