If Nevada's Democratic governor signs a bill passed by the state senate Tuesday into law, his state will have moved the National Popular Vote movement six votes closer to effectively nullifying the Electoral College as established in the U.S. Constitution.
I'm amazed that states are doing this, but then I remember that it's a pack of short-sighted sore loser Democrat controlled states acting out their tantrum.
The 15 jurisdictions, which are predominantly blue, that have signed on thus far are: California (55), Colorado (9), Connecticut (7), Delaware (3), the District of Columbia (3), Hawaii (4), Illinois (20), Massachusetts (11), Maryland (10), New Jersey (14), New Mexico (5), New York (29), Rhode Island (4), Vermont (3), and Washington (12).
These states typically go for the Democrat anyway, so there's no potential to hurt the Republicans with this act of immaturity, but it DOES have enormous potential to hurt the Democrats and give Trump an unprecedented landslide in 2020. Imagine how fun it will be when Trump wins the popular vote and we get to see CA's electoral votes go to Trump.
And honestly, I want that more than anything. The keening and wailing will be delightful.
