Pete Buttigieg is the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and for some reason he thinks he can use that as a spring board to the Presidency of the United States.
Like every other Democratic Presidential candidate, he has decided to jump onto the “the electoral college is bad” bandwagon.
They way he did it, however, is particularly stupid.
.@PeteButtigieg: "We can’t say it’s much of a democracy when twice in my lifetime, the Electoral College has overruled the American people … Let’s pick our President by counting up all the ballots and giving it to the woman or man who got the most votes" https://t.co/ak42dRUf5R pic.twitter.com/EpCC54432k

In his lifetime, the two elections in which the elected President lost the popular vote was George W. Bush in 2000 and Donald Trump in 2016.
In both of those elections Indiana sided with the electoral college winners, Bush and Trump.
Buttigieg lives in South Bend, one of the few Blue dots in what is usually a mostly Red state.
His desire to undermine the electoral college is a desire to undermine the electoral desires of the majority of the people in his state.
It really is something to watch a person from a flyover state to work so hard to fully subjugate flyover America to New York and California.
