Just simplify things then, each state should be worth the same amount of points. So 26 states would win you the election. If it was a 25 state tie then popular vote would decide the winner. That way in places like Vermont although small feels like their overall vote does matter instead of it being a miserable 3 points while California with a significantly larger population has 55 points. So, you could start your campaign in California and your competition could win like 15 small states and still not compare to the amount of points California would give. For example my state is worth 8 points. California being 55 points means our state's vote is worth only 1/7~ that of California. If you're in fact throwing out popular vote than you should honor each state having the same amount of leverage on an election.

what you said sounds ignorant. Think about it, if a place has less people and we do it by individual vote then you need a ratio like this. Otherwise the people in those states with larger population would have their votes brought down to meet the population of other states.Therefore it would just be like: is your state Democrat or Republican(state vs state) instead of alloting individuals with different opinions in the states to have their vote count. The electoral college should be done away with not be evened with un-eveness. Also if your complaining you must have voted for Romney(or not) and in that case i'd say Obama won the popular vote anyway....so who cares about this result if it's the same?

No, I'm just upset that the man who shoved Obamacare down my throat gets to stay in power. The added restrictions to Medicare made it even more difficult when my grandmother was dying of colon cancer and had dementia and didn't know who she was half the time to get the necessary changes made to make her final days on earth better and less stressful for the families.
Please don't flame me. I have my reasons for supporting who I support, as do you.
And for the record, I have never had a Crunchyroll Premium Membership, nor do I need one. I would much rather have my fancy education and spend my money on textbooks with which to better myself than pay for something I don't need. Money isn't the issue here. It's people who do things without accurately predicting the consequences.

Sorry about you grandma first of all. Second the CR thing was a joke...see the lol. Lastly how is giving healthcare to everyone not help in the long-run? that''s just an ignorant train of thought. He forced it on you? So you're apart of the wealthy that had to pay for obama-care? In that case I feel no sympathy towards someone that had to give so the country in a crisis could benefit together.

P.S. You think preparations for any death is easy? At least i'm assuming you had enough money to bury her? My uncle was buried in a wood-box my dad made and buried in my grandmas back yard because he was poor.
