Clinton on Electoral College: It’s Absolutely Contrary to ‘One Person, One Vote’

"I just think it is absolutely contrary to 'one person, one vote,'" Clinton said about the electoral college system.

Former secretary of state and twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton bashed the electoral college system on Friday, saying that it is “absolutely contrary to ‘one person, one vote'” while speaking at Harvard.

“Finally, I know this is another really obvious thing to say – vote in every election, not just presidential elections,” Clinton said. “It is maddening because one of the panelists said we get the government that we vote for. Now, we have this odd system with the electoral college.”

“But never the less we got it. I’ve been against it, by the way, since 2000,” Clinton said. “I have been because I just think it is absolutely contrary to ‘one person, one vote.'”

Clinton won the popular vote but failed to win the electoral college during the 2016 presidential election, and doesn’t seem to be over that failure.
