    I know it's not possible but what would be the theoritical path to get rid of electoral college ? Let's say the Dems play the game same was as Repubs, can they make it happen ?

    You would need a constitutional amendment to do so. 2/3rds of both houses of Congress are needed to ratify an amendment. Then 3/4ths of states (38) have to pass it via their state legislatures. In this polarized political climate passing a constitutional amendment is impossible.

    The other possibly is the Interstate Compact but
    it has zero potential of happening in the next 4 years. Or the next decade. Or beyond that, really.
    The NPVIC is at least 74 EVs shy of 270 (likely 76 short pending the results of the 2020 census).
    The only state where it is "pending" where it has a real chance of passing is Virginia. If the Minnesota DFL can take the state Senate, there's a decent chance Minnesota joins as well.

    At that point it's still 56 EVs short and you're either going to need a bunch of "swing" states like PA + WI + MI + GA to join, or you'd need a massive state like Texas or Florida along with a couple of others to join.
    None of this is anywhere in the realm of actual possibility considering the stranglehold Republicans have on state legislatures.
    The only solution is passing HR1 and packing the Supreme Court.

    They'll probably figure they got the black vote on lock anyway so why bother. That and the dem's are trying to pivot over to latinos.





    I'll be surprised if they nuke the filibuster

    Is their a time table that the voting rights act has to get passed? Has Biden hinted at getting this done?

    They gotta pass HR1/SB1 and John Lewis Voting Rights Act before this coming Fall. 2022 Midterm primaries are going to be happening in most states in spring/summer of 2022

    If Dems don't act, they're legit done in the US House for a decade plus.

    Truthfully don't think the dem leadership care about being in power that much.

    hopefully they do act though

    Our great governor of Cali is being recalled, however signature verification is being implemented to "delay/suppress the will of the people"

    as usual...it's not the act, it's who's doing the act that matters
