Listen: Colorado, Governor Jared Polis, VIC discussed on Pat Gray Unleashed
"Pat, gray. So Colorado has become the latest date and the first swing state to join a group pledging to elect presidents based on who wins the national popular vote trying desperately to navigate the electoral college. Yeah. And also trying to put their own citizens on the outs eleven other states and the district of Columbia have signed on to the national popular vote. Interstate compact. The end PV. I see which is so catchy. Just rolls right off the tongue the nip Vic died, the the the the the nip Vic it agreement that requires those states to select their presidential electors based on who wins the most individual votes nationwide, regardless of which candidate wins, the state is negatives. Yes, you're states vote house stupid. Governor Jared polis signed the Bill Friday bringing the state into the compact. It goes into effect only wants states with at least two hundred seventy electoral votes. The number needed to win the presidential election have signed on and Colorado brings the count now to a hundred eighty one they're less than a hundred away. I know I this at all. Two to seventy before. Now, they say to two hundred seventy before the twenty twenty election appears unlikely, but they had zero just a little while ago. Fatten Hon, this was fast my goodness because a couple years ago, and they some people talking about getting rid of college. It was just kind of in passing. But the Democrats are they're angry because in two thousand gore 2016. Yeah. And my goodness. Now, you've got that's a mainstream idea. You've got presidential candidates talking about this. Elizabeth Warren's ready to get rid of it. My gosh, they definitely have momentum. You're right that momentum with same sex marriage. And they got that done. They had momentum on marijuana. They've pretty much got that done that fights basically over. Now, something that you just I mean really believed impossible just to short time ago is really possible if not likely. People stand up for the constitution here. This is really dangerous stuff. Supporters say that concept would create a fairer basis for presidential elections by essentially going around the electoral college and creating system where each individual vote counts the same. It would also motivate potential voters in non swing states to come out to polls, they say, I don't see how when you know, your entire state's election may be voided by who wins the national vote. And so Democrats can now they don't have to focus on individual states for their voter fraud. They can just go anywhere. They just need to get that number higher anywhere. It again, if if the electoral college doesn't matter say goodbye to any campaigning in small states.."
