Response to Coyotl (Original post)

6. for the tenth time, it is a red herring, won't happen anyhow, and would backfire

 

for one thing, it would have changed NOTHING in 2012 as President Obama would have known as it's done in advance and they would have campaigned different

for another, it would mean Hillary will go into each district, and with her coattails in 2016 will get alot of house victories

for another, let's say its Jeb/Christie and they win PA.
if they do this, they will in effect lose 1/2 the state's electoral votes and the democratic party would gain

but as i have said for 10 times, I believe they are attempting to get the dems to get rid of the electoral system altogether knowing they can't win

Plus, Hillary is now polling ahead in 5 or 6 red states.
She will get 450 electoral votes. and the popular votes.

So, like the repubs did when they signed away the rights to more than 2 terms, and Ike and Reagan could have won a 3rd term if legal but it wasn't, same would happen

IMHO
