It would re-enfranchise all voters who are counter to their stateís lean. Republicans in California and New York as well as Democrats in Texas being disenfranchised by the system undoubtedly outnumber by a wide margin the votes disenfranchised by moving to a popular vote.
    Or just award each states electoral votes on a proportional basis. If one candidate doesnít get the most but they exceed say 40% of the vote, then they get X number of electoral votes. Or every state can do districts like Maine and Nebraska. Puts everything in play.

    no, no, no. Why the beep would California, Illinois, New York or any other big state give up 10+ electoral votes to republicans when red states like Wyoming, Idaho, South Dakota will give nothing back since they only have 1-2 district and odds are they would still stay red. If you want to proportionate electoral votes like Maine and Nebraska, then it should be that the 10 closest states in the previous presidential elections will be battleground states in the next election that will divide their electoral votes by district.

    This would put both Florida, Pennsylvania other lean red/ lean blue states in play. It would repeat every 4 years with the next 10 closest states in the previous election etc etc. And they should just make it too that if you win the electoral college but not win the popular vote your VP needs to be of the opposing party and have at least 30% of your cabinet be off the opposing party.

    Lol please tell me youíre not this dumb, itís an act right? Nobody, including me said Trump supporters looted or even rioted (although if you want: https://www.washingtonpost.com/local...bc9_story.html). So Iím not sure why you want evidence of something not said other than to deflect and strawman.

    Although if you want we can talk about how a Trump supporter walked to a protest, murdered people, and then was endorsed by Trump.

    Thoughts on that?

    No?

    Go back to the kiddy table then, maybe you can read the Onion and think itís real lol

    you think anyone that supports Trump is some terrorist cult, GTFO.

    you are the type that media loves, easily manipulated.


    I said, during the day. anyone can go ahead and show me Trump supporters during the day that were violent, the actual Trump supporters and not some far right (or far left) agitators that showed up at night.

If this was an election where the states picked the president then each state should get a vote. Is that a fair way to pick a president?
    that is what happens now, based on electoral voters from every state. if one wants to change the number of electoral votes a state would get then that is a different argument.

    Because those big states have lots of republicans in them whoís votes are pointless without a system like this.

    I get it, you donít want republicans to win. Neither do I. But I think it evens out across the board and gets more people voting. It also doesnít have to be CA giving up 10 electoral votes. Maybe itís just a couple to get people motivated to vote.

    It also means those blue spots in Montana, etc will get their share. It also means they have to campaign EVERYWHERE and voting turnout goes up.

    We need a fairer representation of the people. Winner take all state electoral votes disenfranchises voters of the minority party in nonswing states.

    Iím all for just going to the popular vote like every normal democracy in the world, but we know that battle is a lost cause with republicans.


    We also need to fix the senate but thatís a whole other topic. Thereís just no way North Dakota and Texas should have equal representation in what has become the most powerful branch.

    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.
    _____

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!
