This week, The New Yorker’s Hendrick Hertzberg and I discuss how the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact will guarantee that the winner of the popular vote will become POTUS.
The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact is a compact to award member states’ electors to the candidate who receives the most votes nationwide It will take effect when states with 270 electors adopt it. So far, 14 states and DC (representing 187 electoral votes) have compact. Colorado’s legislature and governor have approved it (9 more electors) and nervous Conservatives have put it on the ballot as a Referendum in 2020. Hertzberg explains it all and why it’s good for every American except Donald Trump.
