As you know, the number of Democrats calling for an end to the Electoral College is increasing by the day. Slate weighed in on the issue with this question:
Is the Electoral College a threat to democracy? https://t.co/QXxvQsIz81

And they got plenty of answers, few of which the Left wants to hear.

Eliminating the EC is a threat to the Republic

We aren't a democracy and never have been. It's only a threat to those who want the mob rule of the majority.

Maybe this is what they really meant:

That’s more accurate. But if Slate wants to know what’s really a “threat to democracy,” it’s questioning the results of an election, according to Hillary Clinton a week before the 2016 election:
Donald Trump refused to say that he’d respect the results of this election.
That’s a direct threat to our democracy.

Hmm, nothing about the Electoral College in that tweet. What happened?
