(NewsReady.com) – Democrats have been complaining about the Electoral College since losing the presidential race in 2000. They became even more frenzied when Donald Trump won in 2016, even though he lost the popular vote. Now, radical Leftists are demanding Joe Biden get rid of it if he becomes the 46th president.
On November 8, Business Insider’s Manny Fidel said Biden should call for the Electoral College to be abolished, claiming it’s the only way to show loyalty to black voters. Robert Reich also wants to alter the way the country votes for president.

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) tweeted a similar message on November 8th.
Joe Biden will win the popular vote by over 4 million votes. The Democratic nominee for president has now won the popular vote in 7 out of the last 8 elections. One person, one vote. Democracy must rule.
Yes. We should abolish the electoral college.

The Electoral College serves an important purpose by making sure states like California don’t have more power than places like Idaho. Abolishing it would take power away from states with smaller populations and hand it over to larger ones. Further, it’s absurd that the Left continues to act as though Biden is president-elect. The election results are not final.
