  •  I'm referring to electing the President (0+ / 0-)

    not Congresspeople. Ideally, it would be by national popular vote.  However, if not, I'd prefer electors by state rather than congressional district.

    •  I agree that by congressional district is a toxic (0+ / 0-)

      idea, because they are so badly skewed by gerrymandering.  I can hardly believe that this moderately functional democracy has existed for over 200 years and never developed a non-partisan method of redrawing district lines.  It's insane.
