Bernie Sanders is among many on the Left who have called for the Electoral College to be abolished. Additionally, columnists for the New York Times and Washington Post have said a Trump win in 2020 would spark a “legitimacy crisis” if he doesn’t get the most total votes in the whole country (which of course is not what the contest is). It’s almost as if Dems are setting the narrative already for a Trump win in 2020, and that’s bringing with it all sorts of possible scenarios:
Translation: the 2020 Dem nominee might need to beat Trump by at least ~4% in the popular vote to defeat him in the Electoral College. https://t.co/Lxkx4Tzrlo

Dems like Rhodes can’t understand or they’d have to admit that Trump won in accordance with constitutional election guidelines and stop playing their “popular vote” game.
It's funny how President Obama didn't have any problem with the Electoral College. https://t.co/Tg5phIO1If
