Blue State Votes to Abolish Electoral College

Connecticut voted over the weekend to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, which in theory would pool its Electoral College votes for the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote.

If Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy signs the legislation, Connecticut would be the 12th jurisdiction to enter the compact.

The legislation passed the Connecticut Senate 21-14 and the House 73-71.

The compact seeks to make the Electoral College obsolete by having states vow to cast all EC votes to the winner of the popular vote in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
