Skip to comments.My thoughts on what will happen when NPV goes into effect

NPV was started back in 2007. Never mind that it already violates the law - as I understand states must get Congressional approval before entering into contracts that affect the federal government. So far, ever since 2007, the Democrat has won the popular vote in every presidential election and in every NPV state. When NPV gets enough states to reach 270, there will be a situation where one candidate wins the popular vote in a state but is denied the electoral votes from that state because of NPV. This alone would be enough to cause a lawsuit, and on top of that, people in the state would still have voted for the electors from the party of the popular vote loser, so wouldn't the electors nullify the election themselves? Bernie Sanders got votes in Washington this past election.
Would have been a much better article if you explained what NPV is....
Nobody has a clue about what you are trying to say.
National Popular Vote.
What the heck is NPV? The only NPV I’m aware of is Net Present Value, and I’m pretty sure that was not what you were writing about.
I am not the OP but NPV is National Popular Vote
The Democrats want NPV so bad they can taste it!.
Once it is done, the POTUS will be chosen by California and NY and a handful of other populous states. The rest of the country will essentially be disenfranchised...............
Assuming what you say is accurate, it appears to circumvent the Constitution and is therefore unconstitutional.
Net Present Value (NPV) is the difference between the present value of cash inflows and the present value of cash outflows. NPV is used in capital budgeting to analyze the profitability of a projected investment or project.
Net Present Value (NPV) - Investopedia
Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.
It’s instructive for all of us to know, that we do not have a constitutional right to vote in a presidential election.
States are allowed to choose electors to the electoral college at their discretion. They are not required to choose electors via a popular vote.
If a state votes Republican in the popular vote in a state, but a Democrat wins the nationwide popular vote, and that state had decided to award electoral votes that way, I’m not sure legally there is anything anyone can do to change that.
Since states are empowered to choose electors, and are not required to even hold a popular vote election, it’s hard to see how state voters in a state could claim to be disenfranchised, when there is no constitutional right to vote for president in the first place.
So I take it you prefer the IRR (Individual Rate of Return) measure for capital budgeting?
Internal Rate of Return
NPV would require a Constitutional amendment, period.
If the amendment passed it would give the states with large populations complete power over who is elected. This is why the electoral college was written into the Constitution; to protect the vote of people in the less populated states.
The fascist democrats might, at some point, be in power to pass the amendment proposal but would have a hard time getting enough states to ratify it. It would end up like the ERA and the cheating socialists even gave that POS amendment twice the time to pass and it didn’t.
Democrats are socialists/fascists and the party should have been outlawed in 1865 when they lost their bid to dump the Constitution back then.
Thanks——2 other posters said “National Popular Vote”—
I’ll read further.
Throw it back in the rats faces. Whoever wins the most counties in the state get the electoral vote. Every county gets one point whether you have 4 million people or 4 thousand.
Several of the large population liberal controlled states have entered into an agreement whereby they will award their states’ electoral votes to the WINNER OF THE POPULAR VOTE, REGARDLESS OF WHO WINS THEIR STATE.......................
