Elizabeth Warren did a primary campaign town hall in Mississippi. While she was there, she advocated for a national vote and ending the electoral college.

She came to Alabama today to do the exact same thing.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren campaigns in Selma, AL: "Nobody comes to Alabama in the general presidential election or to Massachusetts because they figure we're not in the game because of the electoral college. So my view on this is that we ought to get rid of the electoral college." pic.twitter.com/4YQysRsJu6

Last time I checked, Mississippi had six electoral college votes. Take those away and absolutely nobody will give a shit about Mississippi.
Alabama has nine electoral college votes, Trump came to Alabama in the general election, Hillary did not.
The only reason Warren and the rest of the Democrats are trying to end the electoral college is so that they never have to set foot in a Flyover state ever again.
What Warren is really saying is “Let me abolish the electoral college so I never have to pander to you podunk fuckers ever again.”
Warren is not alone in wanting to end the electoral college, that talking point is now universal among Democrat candidates.
CNN doubled down on it with this mendacious bit of fake news.
The Electoral College has been debated since the days of James Madison, who called it "evil."

It’s not just the electoral college under attack. The other major Democrat talking point has been packing the Supreme Court.
Faithful readers will remember how much we covered after the 2018 election, all the bellyaching on the Left how unfair it was that New York, California, and a few other Blue states have so many people but so few Senators and the Senate being “undemocratic” was a threat to the United States.
These ideas are all linked together.
The point is to set up a system in which the Pacific Coast, Acela Corridor, and (Florida) Gold Coast pick the President, the Senate, and Supreme Court and everyone who lives in a state that doesn’t touch salt water is essentially a subject of the New Yorkifornia Megaopoli.
Essentially the cursed earth in between Mega City 1 and Mega City 2.
I’m just curious if the Democrats have considered that not everyone in flyover America actually wants to hand over their rights and ability to participate in the governance of the nation to the coastal bubbles?
Let’s say that the Democrats get exactly everything that they want, do they expect the 100 million people who find themselves with what amounts to no representation to just accept it and follow along?
Would anybody like to enlighten me as to what the Democrats think will happen if they win it all?
