    The location of where the EVs would come from would change, so that instead of winning 10 states by a hair, a candidate would have to go further afield.  It would be very close, in fact, ideally identical, to NPV, but the location of the votes would change I would think.  A dem would need to campaign in urban Indiana to make up for the loss of parts of upstate New York for example.  I can see dsuch a system helping the winner take all problems.  I can also see such a system hurting progressivism though.  Afterall, making Louisville or Oklahoma City competative might lead to a pretty big dixiecrat comeback.

    Most people say that what some people say is pretty stupid.
