AOC takes heat from heartland after calling Electoral College a racist 'scam'
By Ronn Blitzer

Dana Perino on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticizing Electoral College

Political figures from the American heartland are torching Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., after the coastal congresswoman posted an Instagram video where she claimed the Electoral College was a racist "scam" that needs to go.

The post featured her driving on an empty highway in a desert landscape and joking about how "many votes" there are out there.

AOC CALLS THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE A 'SCAM,' SAYS IT HAS A 'RACIAL INJUSTUCE BREAKDOWN'

Eliminating the current system in favor of electing the president via the national popular vote would shift power to more heavily populated states, such as Ocasio-Cortez's home of New York.

Midwestern states like Michigan and Wisconsin, now heavily sought-after swing states, and smaller ones like Iowa would have less of an impact should this happen, as Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst pointed out.

"Actually @AOC, eliminating the Electoral College would silence our voices here in Iowa and in many other states across the country," the Republican senator tweeted, adding, "This is just more evidence of how out of touch the Democrats have become."

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said that Ocasio-Cortez's statements were evidence that she never took a civics class, asserting the "Electoral College is good for Dems and GOP."

Republican National Committee spokesperson Elizabeth Harrington also took Ocasio-Cortez to task for believing that "it's a 'scam' to allow anyone but coastal elites" to determine how elections are decided.

The cause of eliminating the Electoral College has picked up support among some 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, in the wake of President Trump beating Hillary Clinton in 2016 despite losing the popular vote.

Ocasio-Cortez claimed in her Instagram post that, "Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the Electoral College effectively weighs white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a 'one person, one vote' system where all our votes are counted equally."
Fox News' Dana Perino fired back Wednesday night on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," calling Ocasio-Cortez's remarks "bad for civics education," because of the impact she has on social media.

"Think of how many people follow her on Instagram and are going to think, 'OK, the Electoral College is racist' -- because she's... driving through flyover country, then she thinks that it's OK to say that these people don't matter -- the people that live here don't matter," Perino said, reminding viewers that the Electoral College was not considered racist when it yielded two victories for President Barack Obama.

Proponents of the Electoral College, like Ernst, fear that if the status quo is changed, presidential candidates would overlook smaller states in favor of larger or more densely populated ones.

That is untrue. Suburban and rural areas hold more people that urban areas.

A vote is a vote and should be counted as such.

One of primary reasons the framers wanted electors in the Electoral College, was to prevent a misinformed and easily manipulated public from choosing a demagogue and/or foreign-backed traitor.

The electors, Hamilton believed, would prevent someone with "talents for low intrigue, and the little arts of popularity" from becoming president. And, they would counter "the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendent in our councils."

In the case of Trump, the EC failed to prevent both, and actually enabled a traitorous demagogue to improperly ascend to head our councils.

Rural areas are already over-represented in the Senate. Get rid of the antiquated EC.

Headline "Fox disagrees with AOC today" in today's AOC coverage. Stay tuned tomorrow for AOC coverage where every day Israelis in the Likud party share why AOC wouldn't hate Israel if she would see things through their eyes. Also, most Muslims that we broadcast are embarrassed by Tlaib. See why,

Don't miss the "the squad" in our continuous coverage people who hate America but won't leave.

So, IF... you take that chart from the last election that showed the county by county wins for all of America...... where Hilary won like one or two counties per state and the rest of the country was RED.................AND then you did away with the electoral college............................ ALL you would need to do to win a Presidential election is win those same few counties.... and you can ignore the rest of the country entirely................

It the same difference. Trump got those electoral votes by getting more votes in those counties, but those votes didn't go to Clinton at all.

SO, since we are talking about the Popular vote winning the election..... All anyone has to do to win the Presidency is to win the SAME Counties as Clinton did..... So by focusing your campaign and making campaign promises to just the largest cities in each state and ignoring rural America you can get your message to the number of voters that will win you the white house...........You can BUY the white house with promises to cities at the expense of small town America......

Seriously dude, pay attention. If anything, the suburbs and rural areas out number those in the metropolitan.

But yes, Clinton did win the election.
