Romney will win the majority of the votes outside of Philly and Pburgh.

The pubbies were going to change the electoral college distribution along the lines of Nebraska, according to congressional district with the additional two votes going to the overall gross vote winner.

They had the votes but not the balls {didn't want to be called racists}.

My state senator, Kim Ward, was pushing it but Gleason, the pubbie state chairman, fought against it.

He should be booted.

If they passed that distribution model, Romney would have won at least 15 electoral college votes with the other 6 probably going to obummer.

The Philly dems threatened to use their "get out the vote" resources to go after Republicans in neighboring Repub-held districts. Since under the new rules, they would have needed just 50%+1 in the Philly area, the Dems could have afforded to spend ALL their resources in districts they thought they could take.

The PA Repubs thought more about any risk to their seats, than about the nation.
