Washington, DC – The Supreme Court has ruled that ‘faithless electors’ cannot go against the laws of their states. The ruling was a unanimous decision and said that states could require their electors to the Electoral College to follow those guidelines. Most states require that the electors vote for the winner of the popular vote in the state.
A lot of discussion about these faithless electors has occurred in recent years. There have been several instances of faithless electors, even as recently as the 2016 election.
Democrats have suggested abolishing the Electoral College altogether. There is an initiative to push for a national popular vote election. The idea of removing the Electoral College is a bad one, as it would allow the large cities to rule over rural America. Essentially, a lot of Americans would be left without a voice.
The push came about after Clinton won the popular vote but lost the electoral vote. This national electoral strategy would place Democrats in the driver’s seat, essentially making it impossible for Republicans ever to win a Presidential election.
