The Electoral College with Trent England

The Electoral College–many groups have tried and are trying to change it. The topic became alive again in 2016 with the electoral victory of Donald Trump, while Hillary Clinton received the popular vote edge.

Now Presidential candidate, Mass. Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted a couple of years ago,  “In 2016, nearly three million more people voted for Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump – but Trump took the presidency. That’s not exactly the sign of a healthy democracy. Democracy hangs on the idea that whoever gets the most votes wins.”

What does the Constitution say? What did the Framers say? How has it worked? And what is the National Popular Vote?

Joining me to take a deeper look at the Electoral College is Trent England, Trent is the director of the Save Our States project at the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs and an attorney.
