Gallup Poll: Americans’ Support for Electoral College Increases Greatly Despite Democrat Whining … Up to 47% from 35% in 2011
AMERICANS SUPPORT FOR THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE INCREASES …
According to a recent Gallup poll, Americans support for the electoral college has increases from 35% in 2011 to 47%. In the wake of the 2016 Presidential election that saw Donald Trump win in an electoral college landslide 302-232, where Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, many on the Left are moaning as they cannot accept the election results. As Red State opines, some of that shift can be attributed to increased Republican support in the wake of the election results; it’s not like it spiked in the last year.
Despite Democrat whining as Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, there is a reason why the electoral college exists. The Founding fathers established the Electoral College in the Constitution as a compromise between election of the President by a vote in Congress and election of the President by a popular vote of qualified citizens. There are currently a total of 538 electors, corresponding to the 435 Representatives, the 100 Senators, plus three electors for the District of Columbia as provided for in the Twenty-third Amendment. But of course the LEFT has an issue with a system set up by the Founding Fathers and has served this country well as Libs think that populated states like New York and California are more important than the US citizens in states like Idaho and the Dakotas.
Americans’ support for keeping the Electoral College system for electing presidents has increased sharply. Weeks after the 2016 election, 47% of Americans say they want to keep the Electoral College, while 49% say they want to amend the Constitution to allow for a popular vote for president. In the past, a clear majority favored amending the U.S. Constitution to replace the Electoral College with a popular vote system.
This year, for the first time in the 49 years Gallup has asked about it, less than half of Americans want to replace the Electoral College with a popular vote system.
The reason for this shift in opinion is clear: In the aftermath of this year’s election, the percentage of Republicans wanting to replace the Electoral College with the popular vote has fallen significantly.
Currently, 19% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents favor basing the winner on the popular vote, down from 49% in October 2004 and 54% in 2011. Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents already widely favored having the popular vote determine the winner and are slightly more likely to do so now than in the past.
Of course the ignorant whiny LEFT want mob rule. Because we all know they know more than The Founding Fathers, sarcasm intended.
Former Sen. Joe Lieberman Says the Democratic Party Will Not Win Future Elections if Party Taken Over by Liberal Wing
FORMER DEMOCRAT SENATOR LIEBERMAN SAYS DEMS WILL NOT WIN FUTURE ELECTIONS IF MOONBATS TAKE OVER PARTY …
In the wake of the 2016 elections, former U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman from Connecticut who ran as a Democrat and Independent stated that the Democrat Party will not win future elections if the liberal wing of the party takes over. He is 100% correct. The Democrat party is no longer the party of Truman or John F. Kennedy. Lieberman said, ”It’s certainly not the party that I got drawn to …”. The one time Democrat VP pick by Al Gore is saying that the Democrat party is lurching too far right and losing touch with the American people. However, the Democrat party is moving far left as they had a self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders as a presidential candidate who appealed to nearly half of the party.
The Democrat party that once represented the working class people and the blue color individuals is no longer. Thus the reason why during the 2016 elections Trump not only pierced the Democrat “blue wall” of the Rust Belt, but knocked it down completely. With Donald trump victories in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Iowa and Wisconsin, his message resonated with voters who the Democrats have long forgot.
Former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) argues the Democratic Party will not win elections if the liberal wing of the party takes over.
“Here is my fear about the future of the Democratic Party. In a way, relatively speaking, Hillary Clinton was representative of … center-left of the Democratic Party, not the pure left,” Lieberman said in a radio interview with John Catsimatidis on Sunday.
“Now I think there will be a real attempt by the left-left of the Democratic Party to take over the party, and I don’t think that’s the way to go to make it an effective party,” he continued.
“It’s certainly not the party that I got drawn to … it’s not the party that I worked so hard for when Bill Clinton was president and it’s not going to be a winning party.”
Democrats have been grappling with the future of their party following Donald Trump’s upset win over Hillary Clinton last month. Republicans also maintained their majorities in both the House and Senate.
If the Democrats keep up their far left liberal leanings, they are in for a tough 2018 midterm elections. Of the 33 seats up for reelection in the U.S. Senate, Democrats or Independents who caucus with Democrats have 25 seats to defend, Republicans only 8. Nine of those Democrats Senate seats are in red states won by Donald Trump.
CNN Producer Caught On Hot Mic Joking About A Trump Plane Crash & Reporter Laughs (Update: CNN Apologizes to Trump)
I THINK IT IS SAFE TO SAY THAT CNN IS A BIAS AND DISGUSTING MEDIA OUTLET …
CNN has been caught once again being bias against president-elect Donald Trump and this time it was hardly funny and a laughing matter. While CNN was gathered at the Carrier plant in Indiana, prior to President-elect Donald Trump arriving to give a speech to the Carrier workers regarding the deal he made that saved roughly a thousand jobs to remain in the United States rather than being sent to Mexico, the CNN news crew decided to joke around about a pretty gross and reprehensible topic. A CNN producer was caught on a hot mic saying,“If I do this, it means he’s landed, .. and That means his plane’s crashed…just kidding.” UNREAL.
Can you imagine the outrage from the MSM had some one from FOX News had said something like this regarding Obama? Hmm? Donald Trump is 100% correct to call out the bias and factually incorrect liberal media. This is yet another example of the media bias and double standard. As if a media individual had done this with a Democrat president, they would have been fired.
While CNN was gathered at the Carrier plant in Indiana yesterday, waiting for President-elect Donald Trump to arrive to give a speech regarding the deal that kept roughly a thousand jobs in the U.S., the crew decided to joke around about a pretty grisly topic.
In video obtained by FTVLive, correspondent Suzanne Malveaux was prepping for her live broadcast from Indianapolis. She can be seen discussing what she needs to say on air, what items to touch on, doing sound checks, asking for water, etc.
However, at one point, as they were getting close to going live, a producer can be heard off screen talking about signals she would give if Trump’s plan had landed. It then went south rather quickly.
“That means his plane’s crashed…just kidding,” the voice can be heard saying, while Malveaux’s eyes bugged out. She then tried to smile it off.
The video showed Malveaux — who joined the network in 2002 — reacting with a stunned face but laughing at the remark.
“An unfortunate and inappropriate remark was made by one of our producers off camera yesterday,” a CNN rep said in a statement, Business Insider reported.
“We have apologized to the Trump transition team, and the producer has been disciplined.”
Trump routinely lambastes the media in general but has also singled out some outlets for verbal abuse, including CNN.
Kellyanne Conway for White House Press Secretary …
Watch Kellyanne Conway and how she eviscerates the LEFT and their faux arguments about Hillary Clinton. Kellyann discussed the Harvard Kennedy School Institute of Politics debate that was intended to record history by drawing out the internal deliberations of both campaigns. Instead, those on the LEFT lost their minds as they still cannot accept the fat that Hillary lost and Trump won. It is amazing that Democrats cannot just accept that they had a terrible candidate, who appealed and connected with no one and had no message.
Kellyanne Conway would make a fantastic White House press secretary as she would own these fools.
WILL OBAMA GO THRU WITH A TREASONOUS ACT LIKE GIVING BEGDAHL A PARDON?
Sgt. Bowe Bergdah has asked President Obama to pardon him before leaving the White House. Will Obama provide such a pardon to a traitor? As reported at the NY Times, the request is a pre-emptive pardon that would avert Sergeant Bergdahl’s court-martial trial on charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy that endangered fellow soldiers. The trial is scheduled to begin on April 18. If found guilty, Bergdahl would probably face life in prison. As opined at the Gateway Pundit, “many of the men who served with Bowe Bergdahl have described him as a deserter but that didn’t stop Obama from trading multiple foreign Taliban terrorists for him a few years ago.” But who would really be surprised if Obama, the divider in chief did such a thing? One person who would not is President-elect Donald Trump. He was highly critical of Bergdahl on the campaign trail, calling him a “dirty, rotten traitor”.
A source told Fox News that Bergdahl wrote a letter to Obama thanking him for rescuing him in 2014 and trading him for the Guantanamo Bay detainees.
White House and Justice Department officials also told the New York Times that Bergdahl submitted several copies of a clemency application that were sent to the Pentagon, the Justice Department and the White House immediately after the election.
The pardon would avert Bergdahl’s court-martial trial, which is slated to begin in April. He faces charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, endangering fellow soldiers.
Barack Obama actually brought this deserter to the White House and made it a WH photo-op
Remember when Sergeant Bergdahl was released in May 2014 and Obama appeared alongside his parents in the Rose Garden. The national security adviser, Susan E. Rice, said he had served with “honor and distinction.” Yet another thing Obama and his minions got 100% incorrect and on the wrong side of the American people. It will be a breath of fresh air to rid ourselves of the Obama administration once and for all.
This is yet another reason why America voted from Trump in an electoral landslide, for actions like the current administration did with the likes of Bowe Bergdahl. America agreed with Donald Trump as to what should happen to the likes of this traitor. Take a look and listen below.
