    distinction without a difference though.  Winning with 97% of the EVs doesn't get you anything more than winning by 1 EV, other than bragging rights about mandates which IMHO have dubious political value (especially lately).  I agree it "feels weird", and certainly in theory there are a lot of ways it can fail spectacularly, but like I said, in practice the "right" person usually wins.
