    a GREAT idea, really.

    The key is to pass the law so it only goes in effect when the other states impose the SAME law..then instead of SOME states doing it (Haay Neb), it's a light-switch where all do it at once.

    Minority rights should never be subject to majority vote.

    •  Tying the presidential election to gerrymandered (0+ / 0-)

      congressional districts is a horrible idea. It is completely undemocratic.

    •  Maybe if it were decreed nationally (0+ / 0-)

      that all states would do this then it would work.  But that would require an act of Congress or a constitutional amendment, and the chances of those are respectively slim and none.

      Until that changes, fuck that whole idea.  And any Democratic goo-goos wanting to split blue states they control to make their electoral vote more "representative" should shove it, until we see serious efforts from Texas, Arizona, Georgia, and North Carolina (to name a few) to split their EV's.
