Welch calls electoral college “ancient institution,” supports popular vote - True North Reports

The electoral college helped elect Donald Trump despite his receiving a minority of votes, Peter Welch says. The inconvenient truth Vermont’s incumbent congressman doesn’t directly acknowledge is that under the popular vote, Vermont’s presidential electoral power is diminished.

"Moderator Bob Kinzel asked, “Do you think it would hurt small states?” No I don’t,” Welch replied. “I think it would help America.”

    Just for my own clarification which one of the “Three Stooges” is he anyways ? Larry, Curly, or Moe ? Did this ingracious moron forget that the reason for the Electoral College is so smaller, less populated states (like Vermont, ya know the state he’s supposed to represent)) have a bigger, more equitable role in electing a president than if it was decided purely by the popular vote ? He is no more than a Democratic tool……

    Anybody who reads the reasoning behind the electoral college realizes that it was intended to prevent precisely what Welch and his cronies are attempting to accomplish, the robbing of an election by a manipulating cabal holding the levers of power in communications and political position. Welch, part of the cabal, who was an aider and abettor in the fraudpeachment of the President, has violated his oath of office to uphold the Constitution. This proves it. Remove him on November 3.

    Mr. Welch could benefit from a remedial course on the US Constitution.

    Peter Welch is one of the workhorses in Congress. He is working hard! My problem with Peter is he is working hard against the constitution. Ever since the appointment of RBG to the Supreme Court she has brought her personal beliefs to the bench’s decisions and got away with it. Peter supports these types of appointments because the Democrats have become irrelevant and now rely on liberal judges to pass law as a clandestine legislative branch of government {unconstitutional} to stay in power. Peter must be fired in the next election.
