CT Votes To Disenfranchise Itself: Connecticut To Give Its Electoral College Votes To National Popular Vote Victor

There was a time, in my lifetime, when Connecticut was a reasonably well run, relatively reasonable state that stood in contrast to it’s big brother to the west. Those days are long gone.

How is this in any way constitutional?*

So Connecticut could vote for one candidate, but because the national vote goes another way, it forfeits its electoral college votes? That seems unbelievably stupid. Blindingly stupid. But Trump has blinded many people in the Northeast.

Connecticut’s legislature has passed a bill that would give the state’s Electoral College votes to the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote nationally.

The state Senate voted 21-14 on Saturday to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, which includes 10 states and the District of Columbia. The state House passed the measure last week, 77 to 73.

*Also, isn’t Connecticut “The Constitution State?”
