Republicans Plot to Steal 2016
Quote:According to Mother Jones, Republicans in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan are reviving their scheme to turn those blue states red by changing how electoral voters are awarded, “But now that Romney has been defeated, prominent GOPers are once again mulling rule changes that could make it harder for Democrats to win the White House—and easier for Republicans to claim Electoral College votes in states where they lose the popular vote…. 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.”

<...>Why are Republicans plotting to steal 2016 already? Two words. Hillary Clinton.

Political insiders on both sides of the aisle believe that Sec. of State Clinton is going to run in 2016. If Clinton does run, she will bring to her candidacy a high approval rating (currently 66%), a close association with a popular two term president, the ability to raise huge sums of money, foreign policy experience, and the Clinton brand name that recalls 1990s economic prosperity.

These types of maneuvers by Republicans worry me. It truely is a case of what they can't win honestly, they'll win by hook or crook. And they'll have many willing dupes among low-information Republican voters to get this passed.

I like the idea of awarding electoral college votes by Congressional district, but it can't be done only in blue states. That would be a disaster.
