Eric Holder

Free Beacon: Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday said that the Electoral College is a “defect in our democracy” during a discussion about Congressional redistricting.

Holder, who served during the Obama administration, spoke on a panel at the National Press Club with Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former California Republican governor and prominent actor.

“We’ve got to do away with the Electoral College. We’ve got a system now that was—it’s a defect in our democracy. We have had in the last five elections two presidents who were not—win the popular vote,” Holder said. “The presidency is the one office in this country that represents all of the people. “

“You have a district representative, your Congressman. You have a person that represents your state or two people that represent your state. You have senators and you vote for them in a direct way. It seems to me that you have a direct election of the President of the United States,” Holder continued.

He went on to talk about how Democratic presidential candidates would be campaigning in Texas and Republicans would be visiting California if the system was abolished.

Holder has repeatedly called for the Electoral College to be abolished, saying it’s a “vestige of the past.”

“Time to make Electoral College a vestige of the past. It’s undemocratic, forces candidates to ignore majority of the voters and campaign in a small number of states. The presidency is our one national office and should be decided – directly – by the voters,” Holder tweeted.

    Holder, you are an idiot! The electoral college forces the candidates to listen to all the voters, not just those of the five most populous states. Is there anything more dangerous than an idiot with a law degree?

  2. Democracy not Demogracy – and you make your point.
    Grammar and type-o’s aside, you are spot on. 🇺🇸✅
    Holder is a fool and not a patriot.

  3. The president doesn’t represent “all of the people”, as Holder states. He represents all of the states, and in a limited capacity as defined in the Constitution. As usual, the truth is lost in the ears of too many Americans.

  4. Some person that has Holder’s address, call a taxi to take him to a nut ward.

  5. FIRST OF ALL THE UNITED STATES IS NOT A DEMOGRACY, WE ARE A REPUBLIC. DON’T YOU FORGET THAT YOU HEAR??? YOU REALLY WANT TO MAKE ITA DEMOCRACY BUT YOU’RE NOT SECOND OF ALL , WE’D HAVE TO SPLIT OUR COUNTRY INTO SEVERAL COUNTRIES. WE ARE NOT AS A REPUBLIC STAND BY AND ALLOW SAY 5 OR 6 OF OUR LARGEST CITIES CONTROL THE WHOLE COUNTRY WHICH IS NOW THESE UNITED STATES TO BE RULED AND CONTROLED BY THESE 5 OR 6 CITIES OR STATES . BEWHY SHOULD THE REST OF THE STATES HAVE TO PAY TAXES TO SUPPORT THESE 5 OR 6 CITIES AND STATES AND NOT GET ANYTHING FOR THE UP KEEP OF OUR STATES??? THE ELECTRICTORAL WAS CREATED FOR THE PURPOSE OF EACH STATE HAVING EQUAL REPRENTATION . THE REST OF THE UNITED STATES WOULDN’T HAVE THAT IF THE ELECTORIAL VOTE WAS TAKEN OUT. THE ELECTORIAL VOTE IS THE OVERALL FAIREST WAY FOR ALL OF US THE STATES TO BE REPRESENTED FAIRLY. AMEN SO LEAVE THE ELECTORAL VOTES ALONE , OR MOVE TO A DEMOCRACY COUNTRY . BYE
