Dem Rep. Concedes that Trump Could Have Won Election Without Electoral College
NADLER: "Let me say one thing a little of this. President-elect Trump said that -- well it was pretty on his behalf, I think he said -- when he was pointed out that he didn't have a mandate, that he got two and a half million votes fewer than Hillary Clinton. He said, 'Oh, with the popular vote, I would just -- I would have won the popular vote, because I would have campaigned differently. I would have gone to some of the bigger states.' He may be correct. Obviously, if the rules of the game were changed campaigning would change and maybe that would have overturned that that two and a half million votes, and maybe not, that's unknowable, but the fact is that's what ought to happen. That's what ought to happen. The majority vote to rule in this country as in every other country, as in every other democratic country. I cannot think of any real practical reason any longer to keep the Electoral College."
