California Thinking About Changing Electoral Vote System

Iíve been hearing a little discussion about moving from the current winner-take-all system to a more proportional award of electoral votes. California Republicans are tired of handing all of Californiaís electoral votes to Democrats every election.

An early poll revealed that 49% of those asked support the idea (42% opposed). Many observed that this may change as Democrats become aware of the actual results of the change. I donít think thatíll be a problem for much longer.

The story was carried in the Washington Post yesterday. Writer Karl Vick noted:

Had such a system been in place in 2004, President Bush would have come out of California with 22 electoral votes instead of zero. Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) would have gotten only 33.

I don't think much for the initiative's chances. Also, I'm not sure how I feel about mucking around with the electoral college.
