Influential Pennsylvania Legislator Will Introduce a Bill for Proportional Allocation of Presidential ElectorsDecember 3rd, 2012
Pennsylvania Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi (R-Chester) says he will introduce a bill to provide that the popular vote within Pennsylvania should be used to proportionally allocate presidential electors. Thus, if the Democrats got 55% of the total popular vote within the state, they would get 11 electors instead of all 20 of the state’s electors. See this story. Republicans control both houses of the Pennsylvania legislature and hold the Governorship. Here is a criticism of the idea by Rob Richie. Thanks to Rick Hasen for the links.
