Comments: What I Read This Morning - 4

My father proposed (among other people) breaking up the state-wide electoral votes, so that electoral college votes reflected popular votes by House District (and in a rational world, those would be non-partisan population centers, not gerrymandered "safe seats), with the extra two votes going to the statewide majority winner.

Actually, almost anything would be better. The amazing thing is that turnout hasn't declined more.

From one perspective, it's a testament to people's faith in the system.
