For the record, I wouldn’t really mind doing away with the actual electors and the ceremonial voting in the college process itself. But the allocation of electoral votes by state needs to stay.
I’d even be willing to listen to arguments along the lines of “each congressional district gets its one vote based on the results within that district, with both senate vote going to the candidate that carried the popular vote in that state” like Maine and Nebraska.
For all we hear in the media about how Obama has such a huge lead with two weeks to go, there sure seems to be an awful lot of “battlefield prep” going on to play the “McCain stole the election” game.
