IDEA Make the Votes Count
Hot Button Issue: Big Government
Idea: Start a Petition Process to take Michigan from a Winner Take All State
to a Proportional Allocation
State
Champion: Lawrence Brozowski
Contact / Email: [email protected]
• County Level: Present Idea to other Tea Party Groups
• State Level: Push For a State Ballot Proposal 2014 Mid Term
• National Level: Move to other Winner Take All States
• A True Proportional Allocation of Electoral Votes
– Scenario: Electoral votes are apportioned according to the popular
vote, with the winner getting the "round up."
e.g. A state with 10 electoral votes splits 53% - 47%. The winner gets 6,
the loser gets 4.
• Colorado came the closest to doing this back in 2004, but
abandoned it for a pretty good reason - going to proportional
representation in electoral college votes almost guarantees
that your state will be ignored. (at the National Level)
• Congressional District Apportionment
– Scenario: Winner of each Congressional District gets 1 electoral vote,
and the winner of the state gets the remaining two electoral votes e.g.
Maine & Nebraska
• There are 9 states where the Presidential pick differs from the
congressional delegation:
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
Colorado
Florida
Iowa (tied 2 – 2)
Michigan
Nevada (tied 2-2)
New Jersey (tied 6 – 6)
Ohio (12 – 4)
Virginia
Wisconsin
• Interestingly, this exactly corresponds to the "battleground states" of
2012.
• Using the Daily Kos analysis of presidential preference by Congressional
District, we can get actual 2012 results:
– Obama won 295 congressional districts, Romney 230
– Allocating state popular votes to Obama and to Romney And, allocate DC's 3
to Obama, we get...
Obama loses to Romney 260 - 278
