Erwin Chemerinsky Wants to Do Away With the Electoral College
UC Irvine's law school dean, Erwin Chemerinsky, has an op-ed in today's Orange County Register in which he says it is time to do away with the Electoral College because it is unconstitutional.
"I got an idea. Let's put something in the Constitution that is unconstitutional."
Does anyone seriously think Chemo would be taking this position had Trump won the popular vote but lost the electoral vote?
The reason the framers came up with this system is because they didn't want the large population centers to control the elections at the expense of the rural folks. It's still true today. If we decided it all on the popular vote, candidates would only have to campaign in a few places like New York, Florida California, Chicago and Texas.
This guy is so obvious in his biases.
"You're killing me, Erwin."
