Political figures from the American heartland are torching Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., after the coastal congresswoman posted an Instagram video where she claimed the Electoral College was a racist “scam” that needs to go.
The post featured her driving on an empty highway in a desert landscape and joking about how “many votes” there are out there.

The article goes on to state the following:
Eliminating the current system in favor of electing the president via the national popular vote would shift power to more heavily populated states, such as Ocasio-Cortez’s home of New York. Midwestern states like Michigan and Wisconsin, now heavily sought-after swing states, and smaller ones like Iowa would have less of an impact should this happen, as Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst pointed out.
“Actually @AOC, eliminating the Electoral College would silence our voices here in Iowa and in many other states across the country,” the Republican senator tweeted, adding, “This is just more evidence of how out of touch the Democrats have become.”

Former Arkansas Governor MIke Huckabee weighed in:
The great sage, AOC, apparently didn’t take Civics so she wants to get rid of the Electoral College. The college we need to close is the one who gave her a degree! She won’t watch this, but hope you will. Electoral College is good for Dems and GOP. https://t.co/1wRD6fM9mx

Elizabeth Harrington, spokesperson for the Republican National Committee also slammed Ocasio-Cortez for the video stunt:
Ocasio-Cortez (and many 2020 Dem candidates) think it’s a “scam” to allow anyone but coastal elites have a say in our electionshttps://t.co/13w0Uyxjh5
