  •  Not clear to me that a recount is more likely in (0+ / 0-)

    the current system.

    A recount in the current system requires a state with a close enough popular vote to change in a recount and that the electoral vote be close enough that that state flipping could change the vote.

    Obviously, with 51 states (including DC) you are more likely to have a close vote in one of them, but what are the odds that the electoral vote is also close enough for that state to flip the result?

    With popular vote, all you need is a close enough national popular vote.
