On September 27th, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria outlined a possible path to a Trump re-election, and it’s playing out almost exactly like he said it could.
In fact, Zakaria also agreed that this path to victory is “legal and constitutional”.
“The system of electing the president is complicated because it was not designed to be directly democratic. The constitution calls for states to choose the presidential electors, who in turn gather to vote for the President. Over time, states have passed laws that ensured that states popular vote for the presidency would determine the electors. But those are laws, not a constitutional obligation,” Zakaria began during a September broadcast.
