The National Popular Vote

ezs note:  Recently, I picked up one of the cards Andy Fleischmann distributes to the part of the town he represents.  Normally, I find that these are a waste of time - but not this time.  He passed a compact for a National Popular Vote (HB 5421 in Connecticut) What this means, essentially, is that Connecticut - and all the other states that agree to the compact - is they will pledge to vote for the popular vote nationwide, thereby eliminating this asinine Electoral College.  I am happy to report that the State Senate passed it, and it was signed by Gov. Dannel Malloy.  If your state hasn't signed this good bill yet, call your State Representative and State Senator to urge a YES vote for the National Popular Vote compact.  Thanks.

Donald Trump - Voters really, really want a check on Trump. This new poll confirms it.
