Add the Electoral College to the running list of factors Hillary Clinton blames for her 2016 election loss.

And now, she wants it gone.

“I think it needs to be eliminated,” the Democratic presidential nominee told CNN. “I’d like to see us move beyond it, yes.”

As she embarks on her book tour for the newly released campaign memoir, “What Happened,” Clinton has cast blame on everything from James Comey to Russia meddling to voter ID laws – while assuming some responsibility herself – for her loss.

Of course, the Electoral College’s role in her defeat is undeniable. She lost the Electoral College to Trump but won the popular vote by almost 3 million votes – if the U.S. elected presidents based on the popular vote, Clinton would be commander-in-chief.

But the Constitution dictates that electors representing each state must cast ballots for president.
