A Poor Reform
Gerrymandering has made the idea of allocating electoral votes by congressional districts a poor reform for those of us who want our president to be elected by popular vote.
I apologize for my guest column “Electoral College System Flunks the Fairness Test” (Oct. 14, 2012).
Now I must favor those who advocate that each state withhold assigning its electoral votes until all the popular votes are counted and then giving its electoral votes to the winner.
That would work until we can get a constitutional amendment — probably a long wait.
