***There are over 20 MILLION people in Los Angeles and NYC Counties ALONE! Thats more Voters than the entire Populations of New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas, Wyoming, and more COMBINED! — so who will win a “Popular Vote” !?!
***The Founding Fathers identified this threat as “Tyranny By Majority” and thus established the Electoral College.
After the passing of NPV in 2017 unpatriotic legislators finally aquired a Govenor in Lujan that has sworn NM into the Interstate Compact. A euro-asian socialist attempt to destroy the U.S. Constitution and deny New Mexican Voters pure Constitutional Rights. THIS PROTECTS DIRECT TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION.
“The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC) is an interstate compact to award member states’ presidential electors to the candidate that receives the most votes nationwide. The NPVIC would go into effect if states representing at least 270 electoral college votes adopt the legislation.
As of October 2019, 14 states and Washington, D.C., adopted legislation to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Together, they represent 187 Electoral College votes. Colorado, representing nine electoral votes, passed NPVIC legislation, but the law was suspended pending a vote on a veto referendum in 2020.
Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution gives states the authority to determine how their electoral votes will be awarded: “Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors.” This compact does not abolish the electoral college system; rather, the compact awards all of the electoral votes from the member states to the candidate who receives the most votes nationwide.
Most states award all of their electoral votes to the candidate who receives the most votes in the state. In 2016, Donald Trump won the presidential election with 304 electoral votes but Hillary Clinton received the most votes nationwide. The 2016 election was not the only instance in which the winner of the presidential election did not receive the most votes nationwide; it happened in five of the 58 presidential elections in U.S. history.” – https://ballotpedia.org/National_Popular_Vote_Interstate_Compact
