Every state in the union should be like this.
I believe I like the idea of making the Electoral Votes dictated by the voting per Congressional district, with +2 going to the overall popular vote winner within a state. Not to mention, it will marginalize any effects of voter fraud, should there be any.
lol It will make campaigning somewhat of a nightmare, but will be best for the voters I think. For instance, a democrat presidential candidate wouldn’t spend 5 minutes in South Carolina during the general election campaign, but they would almost need to now if there is a CD within the state that could go their way. Same thing as it relates to Republicans with California or New York.
It will maintain the spirit of Federalism, would be a good middle ground between the traditional system we have now and the demands on the part of liberals for a national popular vote deciding elections, and I believe our Founders would approve!
If the RINOs can’t win through principles and issues then make it so you can win by changing the rules.
This is the ONLY way to overcome the Inner-city parasitic tribal votes and associated Vote Fraud. You can’t outvote the dead, Illegals, and black multi-voters.
Every battleground state with a GOP Governor and Legislature should pass this kind of law as soon as possible.
I used to not like this idea, because the libs proposed it, but now that the GOP has many state houses and governorships, it’s time to do it. A more proportional representation is good for the Red states.
This should be done immediately. The cities have begun to overwhelm the rest of the electorate to the point where they are losing their representation within the quadrennial “assembly” that is the electoral college.
Sounds good to me. Better than the bull**** “popular vote” crap being pushed by the liberals.
Yes, big city urban sponges are killing America. They are disproportionately voting in their favor and more rural areas are getting hosed. The only thing that would be better would be 1 state = 1 vote.
This is a great idea for Ohio. There is far too much clout in the major metro areas (Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton), and all of that clout is on the side of the socialists, voted by the entitlement class.
Proportional allotment would be a great way to get some voice back to the conservative districts.
This would make Ohio irrelevant in national elections ... GOOD!
Conservatives need this to happen in CA and NY ASAP.
I figured this out early during the year: if the Republican-controlled Purple States (FL, IA, MI, OH, PA, VA and WI) shift to the Maine-Nebraska Method, Mitt Romney would be a cinch to win. Sure enough, if they had, he would have been.
Here’s the deal (Michael Barone pointed this out when explaining why Obama was re-elected while the Republicans kept the House): Democrats are much more concentrated in inner city districts. Republicans are more evenly spread out in the suburbs, towns and rural areas of the country. Democrats win lots of districts with 75 percent or more the vote. We win many more districts with 55 to 65 percent of the vote.
As it is, vote fraud and voter intimidation is rift in the inner cities of the country. When that tips the balance in big states, it can be devastating to democracy.
I have been a fan of this idea for several years now, and would love to see all 50 states allocate their votes this way. It keeps any state from attaining excess importance, and keeps the cities from necessarily overwhelming their neighbors in the rest of their respective states. Also, the decentralization makes vote fraud that much more difficult to accomplish to any real effect. Outstanding idea, and I truly hope it catches on across the US!
