Charlie Kirk, founder and CEO of Turning Point USA, explained a political push from Democrats and the far left to circumvent the electoral college and determine presidential elections via the popular vote.
The National Popular Vote is a campaign to evade the electoral college via an interstate compact wherein partner states — via their own statewide legislation — agree to cast their electoral votes based on the national popular vote, regardless of how their own state’s citizens voted.
Charlie Kirk offered his analysis in a Tuesday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.
On the topic of centralized power on the left, Kirk states, “Fifteen states have already voluntarily given up their own state sovereignty to the mob. At our worst moments in American history, we gave into the mob. Our best moments…were where we protected individual rights and had decentralized power.”
Charlie Kirk claims this will reverse the brilliant electoral college system, which lays between the Constitution and the mob.
“The electoral college necessitates the energy and the time of candidates to places and parts of the country that they otherwise would not go to,” remarked Kirk, drawing on his 2017 explanation of the electoral college’s value.
Kirk also noted a few other risks of abolishing the electoral college: the lead of urban domination in elections, the rising levels of inner city voting fraud, the power struggle amongst the federal and state governments.
