  •  The main reason this pla works for the GOP is (1+ / 0-)

    due to the gerrymandered districts.  Because Dems stayed home in 2010 a number of state governments were taken over by the GOP, including here in Wisconsin.  

    While the state voted for Obama in 08 and 12, and had over 200,000 more votes for Democratic congressmen at the state level in 2012, the gerrymandered districts meant we did not retate the state assembly, and lost the senate.  (it was a huge fiasco here, done in secrecy behind closed doors without any input from Dems.)

    Nationally, I think that delegating votes by district moving forward will only work if an independent (if that is possible) commission draws the districts.  It worked in California and seemed to work in AZ.  

    Of course the GOP wants it both ways.  They want winner take all in states liek Texas but they want to divide the electoral vote in states like WI and PA.

    The GOP plays for keeps and it is making me sick to my stomach.
