After using underhanded tactics to alter senate bounderies to favor themselves, Virginia is now considering doing away with its winner take all electoral vote allocation for one which, if it had been in place for the 2012 election, would have awarded Romney nine of Virginia's 13 EV's, and President Obama only four, despite Obama carrying the state. The "reasoning" given behind the move is breathtakingly dishonest.
Sen. Charles W. “Bill” Carrico, R-Grayson, said the change is necessary because Virginia’s populous, urbanized areas such as the Washington, D.C., suburbs and Hampton Roads can outvote rural regions such as his, rendering their will irrelevant.
So much for one person, one vote, eh? Obama won Virginia by three percentage points, but under this scheme, the will of the majority of the state's voters will be rendered irrelevant. As I asked before, if "proportional" EV allocation is such a good idea, why aren't deep red states like Texas considering it?
