Federal Court Deals Serious Blow To the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact’s Attempt to Circumvent Electoral College
8-22-19, * -- On Aug 20, 2019 the 10th Circuit Denver-based U.S. Court of Appeals ruled that the Colorado secretary of state violated the Constitution when he removed an E.C. delegate who had chosen to vote for John Kasich instead of Hillary Clinton. Michael Baca, a loyal Democrat delegate was attempting to be a part of a movement by Electoral College [E.C.] delegates across the country to pull away votes from both Trump and Hillary so as to send the election to the U.S. House of Representatives. [The Constitution provides that if no candidate receives 50% plus one vote (270 E.C. votes), then the top three candidates in the E.C. are to be presented to the House of Representatives and the House is to select the next president.]
Baca's plan was dependent upon 35 Republican delegates also casting their votes for Kasich. While Kasich would not have received any votes in the general election, his third-place finish in the E.C. would have made him eligible for the Republican-controlled House to elect him as president of the United States. This was Democrat's attempt #1 in their attempt bypass the states voters to remove Donald Trump.
Attempt #2: In another case of "Trump Derangement Syndrome" Democrats tried to circumvent the E.C. with their “National Popular Vote Interstate Compact” (NPVIC) . It’s many Democrat leaders have encouraged state legislatures to enter into an agreement wherein the states in the NPVIC will award all their E.C. votes to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote. This agreement would take effect when necessary states joined totaling at least 270 E.C. votes.
The problem with this harebrained scheme is that it attempts to work around the U.S. Constitution to legally amend the Constitution that now requires ¾ of the states to ratify and change it by new amendment or via a constitutional convention called for by the states. Now they want to change the rules and requirement as they know ¾ of the states won’t approve it.
The good news is that with the recent 10th Circuit’s ruling, clearly the Dems must realize the beginning of the end of their latest scheme to end the E.C. While the 10th Circuit decision doesn’t directly deal with the NPVIC, the reasoning of this decision will be used when lawyers argue the eventual unconstitutionality of the compact as without the Electoral College in America's Elections ... Four Border States Would Decide Every Election.
