Republican Party Working To Change Electoral College Rules

This just in from the loser’s corner…

via NBC News

Republicans in MI, OH, PA, VA are looking to change the Electoral College rules, but not their party. The changes would give the GOP a HUGE advantage in presidential contests, but it would also present this dilemma for Republicans: it would speed up efforts to have the popular vote decide presidential elections.

Republicans are looking to change the Electoral College system in battleground states that Democrats have won in the last two cycles. As the Washington Post reports, Republicans in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia — all controlled at the state level (in some form or fashion) by the GOP — have proposed awarding their Electoral College votes by congressional district instead of the winner-take-all approach used by every state except for two (Maine and Nebraska).

The Republicans advocating these changes say they would give smaller communities more of a voice in presidential battleground states.

These lames really ought to give it a rest. They have four more years before anyone cares again.
