    Stuff like it has been proposed before. In fact (if anyone from California can confirm this, I'd appreciate it), I think there was a scheme after the 2008 election to either divide California's electoral votes by congressional district (which would give the GOP a sizable number of EVs in a state they get blown out in) or have the GOP portions of California secede a la West Virginia and form a new, solid GOP state. Crazy, I know and it didn't go anywhere, but I think it had some sizable GOP names in CA backing it (like Darrell Issa and his $).

    And of course, the PA GOP tried this before last election, but it collapsed and didn't go anywhere (largely because the GOP House delegation and the state legislators were terrified it could cost them). Same deal will happen here.
