As I understand it, in the presidential elections, the person who wins the majority of votes (regardless of how close the final totals may be) in each state receives all of that state's electoral votes. If this is, in fact, the way it's done, I was wondering if it would not be fairer to allocate that state's electoral votes on a proportional basis rather than winner-take-all. Example: Suppose a state has a total of 10 electoral votes. In the presidential election let's say that the Republican candidate wins 60% of the popular vote, and the Democrat candidate wins 40% of the popular vote (or vice versa). Wouldn't it be fairer to give 6 electoral votes to the GOP candidate and 4 electoral votes to the Democrat candidate? IMHO this way would seem to reflect better how that state actually voted than the winner-take-all. What do you think about this?
