Apparently not fair enough ...
Rather than change their policies, or change their messaging, or change their ideology to win more elections, the Left instead is intent on CHANGING THE ELECTION LAWS so that only THEY can win. They cannot honestly claim, however, that the Electoral College - which is simply the STATES casting their Votes for President - is unfair!
May 5, 2023 - The legislature in Florida adjourned their session on May 5th and they left the National Popular Vote scheme to die in Committee! The NPV is no longer pending in Florida!
December 16, 2022 - A lone Democrat Representative, Mike Gottlieb, D-102nd Broward, has pre-filed for the 2023-2024 legislative session another National Popular Vote scheme bill. It is H-053.
NPVIC Scheme DIES in Florida Legislature
March 2022 - GREAT NEWS! The National Popular Vote bills in both the Senate (SB-584) and the House (HB-69) have DIED in Committee on 3/14/2022! They cannot come back up until the new session in 2023.
Nov 2021 - The Senate version of the replacement National Popular Vote Interstate Compact Bill, SB-578, has been introduced by Sen. Victor Torres, D-Kissimmee. It has been referred to the Senate Ethics & Elections, Rules and Judiciary Committees.
Sept 2021 - The bills pending to enact the NPVIC scheme in both the House and the Senate DIED in their Committees this summer. HOWEVER, a Replacement Bill - HB-69 - was reintroduced in the House by Ranking Democrat Joseph Geller from Broward and Miami-Dade. It is pending in TWO House Committees at present. The link at the left will show you the current status and the Committees.
February 2021 - On February 5, NPVIC Senate Bill SB-1092 was filed by Democrat Senator Victor Torres, 15th District. The NPVIC is now pending in both Chambers.
On 12-08-2020, Democrat Rep Joe Geller reintroduced the dreaded National Popular Vote Interstate Compact scheme in the House.
He claims that there is "MORE Urgency" now TO enact this Federation-damaging plot. "Recent events (Trump-Biden Election controversies) highlight that the vote of the people could have been hijacked, theoretically at least, in the states", Geller said. (Our Opinion: HOW in the world the NPVIC could ever be viewed as a SOLUTION to that escapes honest analysis! *)
We expect a big push, from the California-based National Popular Vote office, in Florida in early 2021. They have hired a half-dozen highly-paid former Republican State lawmakers and 'consultants' for the express purpose of convincing Republicans that a national popular vote will help their Party specifically.
In January 2020, Democrats introduced the NPVIC Bills in the House and Senate. The Bills both died in Committee in both Chambers in March 2020.
With its 29 Electoral Votes, a Republican Governor and a solid Republican General Assembly, Florida is one of the few Red States that the Left needs in order get closer to their Collusion Threshold of 270 Electoral Votes to activate the NPVIC Compact.
The National Republican Party stands strongly opposed to the NPVIC scheme in its Party Platform and Florida Republicans also have a good track record of following the Republican Party Platform.
However, because of its size and because of Florida's "Swing State" status of close elections, we still give Florida a Moderate Risk rating for succumbing to the NPVIC scheme.

Demand that they take every action possible to STOP the NPVIC whenever it appears.

Tampa, 9-10-2019 - Talk Of Redesigning Electoral College Picks Up Steam. By Steve Newborn, WUSF Public Media
“What if something you changed caused unintended consequences you never imagined?”
Safeguard: An Electoral College Story asks that question about presidential elections. How does the system really work? And what would happen if we changed the rules?
Alexander Hamilton and James Madison worked to create and defend the Electoral College system in the U.S. Constitution. The process is democratic—but it works in stages, and through the states.
This design forces candidates to reach out across the country rather than focusing on just one region or group of population centers. And it keeps presidents from controlling elections—including their own reelections.
