President Trump himself seems to have evolved in his opinion on the Electoral College versus the Popular Vote.
….just the large States – the Cities would end up running the Country. Smaller States & the entire Midwest would end up losing all power – & we can’t let that happen. I used to like the idea of the Popular Vote, but now realize the Electoral College is far better for the U.S.A.

Once you’ve actually won an election and see how it’s supposed to work you realize just how brilliant our founders really were in their plight to keep us from mob rule and protect the minority from the majority.
Saikat Chakrabarti aka AOC’s Chief of Staff for whatever reason thought it made sense to accuse Trump of using the EC to steal the election.
Don’t make that face, we didn’t tweet it.

This effin’ guy.
Maybe he should take some lessons from AOC on how to tweet. Unless?
You should have tweeted this from AOC’s account. It would have played better.

It’s not stealing if he won by the system that everyone agreed upon beforehand.

Democrats can’t seem to understand that when they lose it’s because their ideas and policies don’t appeal to the majority of the country so they claim foul play. Project much?
The 2016 election wasn’t stolen anymore than Bill Clinton stole 1992. Clinton won only a plurality of the popular vote because of Perot, but won the necessary EC votes. You know better, you’re just being disingenuous.

Disingenuous is what he does best.
There would be some benefits to eliminating the electoral college but also some downsides. Regardless, the DNC knows how the electoral college works and if they still can't win that's on them. Stop skipping flyover states.

“Steal the election anyway because of the electoral college.”
You are the CoS to a sitting Congressperson. Have you bothered to read the Constitution? Do you have any idea how this republic works?
If yes, then you are intentionally lying to sow discord.
If no, you may want to.
