GOP Proposes Changes to Electoral Vote Allocation

Following the loss of another presidential election, Mother Jones says Republicans are proposing changes to several state's election rules -- allocating electoral votes by congressional district instead of statewide -- that could tilt the next presidential election their way.

"The states where Republicans have proposed changing Electoral College rules -- Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, where legislation has been introduced, and Michigan and Ohio, where activists have pushed the idea -- went for Barack Obama in both 2008 and 2012. There are no such GOP proposals, for example, in deep-red Texas."
