Uh, no. That's NOT what it says. Maybe I'm being picky, but when he words it that way it makes me think he either doesn't understand it or lies about it.
The electoral college is enshrined in the Constitution, but that doesn’t necessarily make it constitutional.
Behold that brilliance of thought.
He wants it thrown out by the Supremes, because 'those stupid people in the smaller states would block an amendment doing it'. Though the thought of the Supremes saying "This is a written part of the Constitution, but some people don't like it so we'll just throw it out" is interesting, in a 'decorate the lampposts' way. And throw in this:
With an appropriate challenge in the high court, that precedent ought to
topple the electoral college. Still, the college has its
supporters. They fall back on a political defense. In a pure
popular-vote system, they warn that candidates would pay no attention to
the least populous states. But it’s not as if Wyoming’s voters are
getting a lot of attention now.
"So let's see that they get NO attention. Serves them right for living there."
Farging idiot. I wonder how much students pay to listen to him speak this crap?
