Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she “plans to be the last person elected president by the Electoral College,” as reported by Washington Free Beacon.
“I want to get rid of it, so here’s my goal: my goal is to get elected and then to be the last American president elected by the Electoral College. I want the second term to be that I got elected by direct vote,” said Warren. “Call me old-fashioned, but I think the person who gets the most votes should win,” she added. Most of the Democratic presidential candidates showed support for abolishing the Electoral College.
Abolishing the Electoral College would require a constitutional amendment. According to Washington Times, the “Get Rid of the Electoral College” section of her campaign website “provides little in the way of details on how she plans to move forward with such a proposal if elected.”
