All they need to do is pack the states and create more Justices on the Supreme Court, or whatever their shitty scheme is this week.
Or attack the US Capitol in order to kill the electoral system?

The margin of error is 1.8% so the results could have also indicated that less than half of Americans polled in the survey think that the popular vote is the way to go.
Spin Master. You should Grift for trump!

The Acerage American Citizens are the LAST group of people I would ask about any topic involving Right and Wrong or Morality.

Without Dominion and industrial-grade election theft you lose every federal election by 30 million votes.

Sorry bout that,

1. No we would see 500 millions votes come from California if that was allowed.
2. You think im kidding, just slightly.
3. Each Libtard city would have 130% turn out, and claim there was no fraud, and all the voters would be Libtards.
4. Nope lets just keep the vote count the way we do it now.

Regards,
SirJamesofTexas

The repub party will never let it happen. They have been ruling as a Minority for years.
Trump had his chances. Twice. Won in 2016 but the second chance didn't work. The Trumpsters think since he was served a warrant the votes will increase. They might, but so will the votes for the opposing candidate(s)

He didn't win the popular vote and doubt he ever would. More voted for the other guy and it's going to be the same. Trump isn't as popular as some seem to think.
Nobody cheated. Nothing was proven. Trump had his chance to prove it. He couldn't.
Blaming others for losing proves he is nothing but a whiner, and so are his supporters.

Even with the arcane electoral system. If this country adopted a one person one vote system, Republicans would lose again.

You would have to allow states to opt out of the Union if you change the condition under which they voluntarily joined.


Never underestimate the stupidy of voters or of [small] Blue States. Several [small] Blue States are already in favor of the winner of the popular vote getting their state's electoral votes regardless of how their people voted.

Imagine you live in such a state and you vote for 'A' but 'B' wins the so-called popular vote nationally and that state then gives your vote to 'B'. Talk about suppressing the vote.

Or under the BS postulated in the OP every election decided by CA and NY. Yeah, once people get educated they'll never go for that shit.

The Founders were wise and knew that they could not allow the most populous state(s) to swing the vote, back then it was VA, and to dominate Presidential elections every 4-years.

Why the hell does the OP think we are a Republic and that the word democracy does NOT appear in the Constitution?

Damn right the Republicans will never let it happen. It's been happening the way it happens for a lot longer than you have a right to have an opinion about.

Cry harder.
