One year after accurately predicting that Donald Trump would win the presidential election, filmmaker Michael Moore, a vocal Trump critic, says the the billionaire is already on track to win re-election.
“I should say re-appointed, because we will have an even larger population that will vote against him in 2020,” Moore says in a recent interview with Fast Company. “But he will win those electoral states as it stands now.”

However, the Oscar-winning director says he has a plan to stop Trump from winning in 2020: the popular vote.

The Fahrenheit 9/11 director believes the National Popular Vote interstate compact, an initiative in which 10 state legislators have enacted and, thus, agreed to award all of their electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote in a particular state.

“That’ll be an easier way to get this done. People should not despair, thinking, well, the Republicans have all this power and all that,” Moore says of the long-shot plan to effectively bypass the electoral college system.

If the electoral college ends, it's the end of our Democracy & every state should be allowed to secede if they wish. No state would have joined the union if their voices were not going to be heard & make no mistake, that's exactly what this is. The left trying to disenfranchise voters who don't live in New York, California, Illinois, Florida & Texas.

Technically, if the electoral college ends it would be the end of our republic and the beginning of our democracy. We are not and have never been a democracy.

Bingo.


The electoral college isn't going anywhere, as 2/3 of the states would need to agree to the change.
Not happening.

great idea when there were 13 colonies, not so much today. The founding fathers could never have envisioned the westward expansion and territory gains.

why should one person in Wyoming have the same power it takes 137,000 people in Ohio?


it's so simple, one person, one vote, what are you scared of???

I'm scared of this country turning into California. That's an easy answer.

True Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner.

Of course not, it's Dims pleasuring themselves with self delusions.

Emminem at least realizes Trump will easily be reelected.

Why would Wyoming agree to this? Their citizens would have no voice in the governing of our country. They would be slaves for all intents and purposes, to the five ruling states.
