Forty eight states have winner takes all electors as their system to award electors in our presidential voting. Why do we need electors? If fifty one percent of the citizens vote for mr. bad and forty nine percent vote for mr. good, the good votes are for all intents and purposes have been canceled like they never happened. If that doesn't cancel your vote, there is still another layer to go through, another opportunity to have your vote canceled by the electoral college itself.
One person, one vote literally means your vote could decide who becomes president, not the electors of your state, not the electoral college, YOU!
I 100% support a democratic vote for president because in today's tie that's how it should be. The EC is severely outdated for today BUT that doesn't mean it has to be scrapped although I would support that.
Id be totally ok if ever state at least decided its ECs up to as close as a ROUNDED DOWN percentage for the lesser candidate (vote wise) as it could. I saw close because many states only have 3 or 4 ECs. So it would have to be a rounded down system and in a stare where others only 3 ECs wouldn't couldn't very well give one EC to a candidate unless they hit 33% or that would be rounding up.
In that system, a state like mine, PA where President Biden got 3,459,923 50% of the vote and Donnie got 3,378,263 votes, 48% of the votes BUT all 20 ECs went to president Biden.
I would be totally fine if that wasn't the case and 10 ECs went to Biden and 9 ECs went to Donnie and 1 went to an independent IF that worked out math wise or 11 for biden and 9 for Donnie.
that would be better system
Same with our big states like California and Texas..
in cali instead of all 55 going to President Biden, it would make sense if 36 went to Biden and 19 went to Donnie
in texas instead of all 38 going to Donnie it would make sense if 2went to Donnie and 18 went to Biden
Why would anybody be against that. Every other election is done straight up and we don't live in times where to get messages to Washington could take a month or longer lol
