Electoral Votes by District

A while ago Dems were all excited about a National Popular Vote. In reality it was nothing of the sort it simply gave the plurality all the electoral votes.

At the time I remember thinking the best way at getting at a “popular vote” would be via congressional districts. x number of electoral votes from this part of the state, and y from another would represent the popular will greatly than a plurality winner take all system. Think proportional representation in a Euro like system.

So, yes I fully support the Republican plan to have electoral votes by each congressional district. This get at the popular will of a state much more than the NPV. What i’d really like is IRV, but that’s another story.
