    and no one has objected to that.

    The real problem is that the GOP, through its control of state legislatures, has gerrymandered the Congressional districts to ensure their own power over the House, and now wants to change the rules to extend that structural advantage to the Presidency.

    I can't see any particular reason why EVs should be allocated on a statewide at-large basis rather than by Congressional district. I do see strong reasons not to allow this GOP gang to make that change for the transparently obvious reason that it enables them to win where they otherwise can't -- but that doesn't make it unconstitutional or revolutionary, just politically undesirable.
