Senator Barbara Boxer makes push to abolish Electoral College

Nov. 16, 2016: NBC's Traci Potts explains the process of eliminating the Electoral College.

California Senator Barbara Boxer filed legislation to abolish the Electoral College.

Boxer says when all the votes are counted, Clinton will probably win the popular vote by a margin that could exceed two million.

She says America is the only country where the popular vote doesn’t pick the president.

She also cited the fact that Trump himself tweeted in 2012 that the Electoral College is “a disaster for democracy.”
