Popular vote on popular vote
|A bill by Assemblyman Tom Umberg cleared the Senate today which would provide all of California's electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote. |
According to Umberg's office:
Assembly Bill 2948 ratifies an interstate compact whereby the State of California agrees to award its electoral votes not to the Presidential ticket who receives the most votes in California, but rather to the ticket that receives the most popular votes nationwide. However, the compact only goes into effect when states collectively possessing a majority of electoral votes also join the compact. California is the first state where both legislative houses have approved the compact.
