  •  This is a ten year project (7+ / 0-)

    First you have to take over the states - governors and both chambers. Then you need the 2020 census results. Now you can fuck with district boundaries (gerrymandering).

    The Republicans have a ten year lock right now. It's going to take a lot of work to undo their damage.

    It may be better to get rid of the Electoral College. It's an anachronism anyway.

      But that's not what these Republican governors are up too. They want to rig the Elelctoral vote for the Republican party, period.

        whatever he could to subvert Ohio's election process. Thankfully, he was unsuccessful (at least at the national level) but just two days after the November general he came out with the notion of changing Ohio's electoral allocation 'to make Ohio less important' in the process.

        Husted’s solution to this perceived problem of Democrats and the national media picking on him? He says we should make Ohio less important in the election by dividing up our electoral votes by Congressional district.

        This is huge and should raise giant red flags. Under the current winner-take-all system, Obama won all 18 of Ohio’s electoral votes. Under Husted’s plan, 12 of those 18 electoral votes would be handed to Mitt Romney, the popular vote loser.
