Ruth Bader Ginsburg says Constitution makes abolishing Electoral College 'largely a dream'

One is the Electoral College,” Ginsburg said in 2017, according to The Hill.

“But that would require a constitutional amendment, and amending our Constitution is powerfully hard to do.”

The Electoral College has come under increased scrutiny by Democrats since President Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the Electoral College vote in 2016 after losing in the popular vote.

Former President George W. Bush also defeated former Vice President Al Gore in 2000 via the Electoral College after losing the popular vote.

On the Republican side, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, tweeted last month that the Electoral College helps maintain a representative democracy.
