By Senator Boxer’s logic, then the U.S. Senate is a very ‘outdated, undemocratic system that does not reflect our modern society’. Using her logic, why should Wyoming get the same number of Senators as say California?

Fact is, the Electoral College is in place to protect the minority in the USA.


Retiring Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, who was an outspoken supporter of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election, is set to introduce a Senate bill that aims to end the Electoral College.

Boxer announced in a statement on Tuesday that the bill, which she planned to introduce later Tuesday afternoon, would determine the winner of presidential elections by the outcome of the popular vote.

She cited President-elect Donald Trump’s victory in the Electoral College despite Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s apparent popular vote advantage.
