More and more Democrats, including some 2020 presidential candidates, are floating radical ideas like abolishing the Electoral College and expanding the Supreme Court beyond nine justices. The hottest position in the Democratic presidential field this week is abolishing the Electoral College.
Trump had this to say about the electoral college in 2012: it's "a disaster for a democracy".
But Warren's comments Monday during a MS town hall broadcast on CNN represent her most straightforward endorsement of an end to the electoral college system.
"The brilliance of the Electoral College is that you must go to many States to win", Trump tweeted on Tuesday night.

"Come a general election, presidential candidates don't come to places like MS, she said". A handful of Democrat-leaning states including California, Illinois and NY have joined a compact aiming to elect presidents based on who wins the popular vote.
Other Democrats have warmed to the idea, including potential presidential contender Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana who said ending the system would encourage greater voter participation at the national level. "With the Popular Vote, you go to... just the large States - the Cities would end up running the Country". Colorado Gov. Jared Polis brought the current total to 181 when he signed a bill last week to join the compact, and the Democratic governors of DE and New Mexico also have bills on their desk. During Barack Obama's presidency, many predicted he may benefit from an Electoral College advantage.
Critics argue that the Electoral College minimizes the role of millions of voters in several populous states because the results there are rarely in doubt.
It would require lawmakers to pass a constitutional amendment - no easy feat in a paralyzed Congress - and then ratification by 38 out of the 50 states. Since it's not in the Republicans' best interest to eradicate the electoral vote, this is our best chance of getting around a GOP controlled Congress. "I'd much rather focus on things that can get done".
