Thank you for your detailed explanation and article. A feature of the United States that I find significant (as compared with other countries) is the notion of the balancing of power between the federal and state government bodies. Unless I am missing something, allowing the state to determine allocation methodologies of electoral votes is a feature of that system.
It seems to me that the Electoral College, as it is now, is a balancing feature, designed specifically to counter balance against the tyranny of the majority, and works quite well, much like the proportional and non-proportional make up of Congress.
My understanding is that electoral policies are handled at the state level, couldn’t then a state vote to change their policy? If they don’t want to have WTA, then they could determine that for themselves. Or is my understanding incorrect?
