      But the problem isn't proportional allocation of electors, it's having only states that have been trending (D) proportionally allocating their electors. If we got a cut of (R) states in our electoral count, too, there wouldn't be a problem. It's a matter of universalizing the practice and getting rid of the nonsense idea that Congressional districting should have anything to do with how electors are chosen.
