Thanks to Angus king, Chellie Pingree, Susan Collins, and their flunkies in the NEA, the public schools, the left wing socialist media, the party of the democrat, and the cowardly Patriot community that refuses to do anything but wimper, after 18 months it seems the White Horse is being put out to pasture.
"... And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. ..."
Even David could not fight the forces of evil alone.
Hey, nice to see you are still around.
Maine went for Obama by 15 points. Hillary won it by just 3. It’s going Red in 2020. Unfortunately, because the EV are awarded by district, it’s only a 2 vote gain.
I kind of like the Maine/Nebraska system—and having a couple of states doing different things at least is an occasion for people to think.
I don’t disagree. Look at Minnesota. It’s a typically blue state. But if you broke our state’s 10 electoral votes down in the same way Maine does, here’s how 2016 would have come out:
Trump: 1st CD, 2nd CD, 6th CD, 7th CD, 8th CD = 5 electoral votes
Clinton: 3rd CD, 4th CD, 5th CD = 3 electoral votes
Clinton won the statewide vote narrowly so that = 2 more electoral votes
Final Electoral Vote Total:
Trump 5 EV’s
Clinton: 5 EV’s
