After the 2016 election, desperate leftists tried to harass members of the Electoral College into not voting to confirm Trump as president. It was, as the same people like to say, a direct attack on our democracy.

Now, having realized that won’t work, the left is simply trying to do away with the body.

The compact will not go into effect until the coalition includes states that add up to 270 electoral votes or more. Once it does go into effect, states that are part of the coalition would award their electoral votes en masse to the candidate who wins the national popular vote.
