Keep the EC. Not the winner take all system. States have a variety of voters, and should not be represented as they always have. We gave an illegitimate idiot a try at the Presidency, so the split electorate vote deserves a chance, too.

While state can decide for themselves how EC votes are distributed, the winner take all system was the first steps toward dismantling the system. EC votes should be apportioned by Congressional district to restore balance between liberal urban populations and rural conservative ones. It is beyond perversion when one city can determine who gets an entire state's worth of EC votes.

I like the point per district thing. Even if we only have 2 districts. My states biggest city is 60,000 people. I dont see that "overruling" anyone. My vote doesn't mater anyway, its a blue state.

My problem with the electoral college, is i don't want certain states having all the power and deciding the election. Ironic, the same argument the people who want to keep the stupid system use.

Why "fix" what ain't broke? And splitting the state's electoral vote is just a step down the wrong slippery slope. Elections have winners and losers. Period.

What power? The power they currently have? The power to gerrymander and still thereby be a solid-block state? Or, the power that would be present in a popular vote, due to their numbers?

That would make a vote in South Dakota worth 50 times more than a vote in California.

Well, sounds good. :supergrin:

They will not all vote the same so popular vote would have a very different outcome than the electoral.

If I vote in this poll, will my vote count directly, or will the GT Electoral College have to meet in a bar someplace and vote again?

I'd keep it the way it is. But I do like the two vote per state idea this way we can make every state just as important as the other regardless of population and or party affiliation. One state shouldn't be anymore important then another.:supergrin:
