Maybe I have totally mutsndersiood this…I thought the idea was to ‘get rid’ of the electoral college by removing its voting power within the states that adopt this measure.Technically speaking, just because Democrats (say) win 65% of the votes in a state, the electoral college could *still* vote 100% Republican.Typically however, the EC votes for the majority winner in each state…but this *need not* be the case AFAICT.What I thought was being proposed is that (continuing the above example), *no* EC ‘voting’ takes place, instead the ‘votes’ are proportionally allocated…so 65% of the EC ‘votes’ automatically go to the Democrats, 35% to Republicans.IOW, proportional EC representation within each state.I like that idea…I think it would more honestly represent the will of the people, yet still maintain the overall integrity of the EC as intended.I also think it would represent far greater gains for conservatives than liberals…in fact, liberals may well find themselves unelectable…
