Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Thursday night said he favored getting rid of the Electoral College.
Sanders was pressed on the issue at a presidential town hall hosted by the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC).
The article goes on to state the following:
“It is hard to defend a system in which we have a president who lost the popular vote by three million votes, so the answer is yes,” he said.
Sanders had previously called for an examination of the Electoral college. “Presidential elections cannot be fought out in just a dozen ‘battleground’ states,” he said according to The Washington Post. “I believe that we need to reexamine the concept of the Electoral College.”
