Cara Robinson can yell at me all she wants. She is so 'easy on the eyes', I could not care less. I'm in love with the 'Morning Drive' and Cara.
So proportional, rather than by district. I missed that detail.
A proportional system has its own set of issues. A 60-40 margin in California could be allocated like that, but what about a state like North Dakota, which only has one House seat? A minor party in California could be entitled to an elector with only 2 percent of the popular vote.
The problem is that the process of drawing the congressional districts is highly politicized. Democratic House candidates won over 1 million votes than GOP candidates in 2012, yet Republicans kept a solid majority of seats. If all the states allocated their electoral votes by the ME/NE system, Obama would have lost despite winning a popular majority.
It's probably the ideal solution, but not before a push for anti-gerrymandering reforms.
