Electoral college change could benefit Republican candidates

August 7, 2007

   This is one you liberals better get up in arms about in a hurry.  Imagine if  the popular vote winner in a state didn’t get all the electoral votes.  Instead, suppose that the winner in each congressional district won a portion of them.  Instead of an automatic 55 electoral votes going to the Democrats in the state of California, it were split, more fairly along party lines.

   Well, if a ballot initiative in California goes through that’s exactly what will happen, and the Democrat candidates will find it much harder to win the election.

Before you scream foul though, Democrats are trying to do the exact same thing in North Carolina.  Watching politics is more fun than football.
