HawkeyeGOP: The Electoral College

Excerpted from this post at HawkeyeGOP

According to the Des Moines Register, Democrats in the Iowa Senate are
proposing a change to Iowa law that would grant Iowa's electoral votes
to the winner of the national popular vote. Currently Iowa's electoral
votes go the winner of the vote in here Iowa. Democrat Senate majority
leader Gronstal said: "I think there's broad support for the concept
that a majority of the people in the country should elect a president.
... This is a mechanism to get there and it doesn't require a
constitutional amendment." Wow, the Democrats take control and they
think they can do anything. In this case, Gronstal is suggesting and
end run around the Constitution.
