In response to:

Electoral College Is Democratic, Not democratic

In the cases where a minority of votes would decide the Presidency the voters collective judgement is that there is no compelling reason to vote for either candidate, and thus a coin flip would be as good as an expensive election in selecting the winner. This is not to say that individual voters do not hold a different view of the relative worthiness of the candidates.
In 2000, conservatives were obligated to explain why they supported preservation of the Electoral College even though it produced a victory for their candidate, George W. Bush. In coming elections, their devotion may face a sterner test: Will they favor it if Democrats win the White House even when Republicans carry the popular vote?

Mitt Romney managed to avoid that problem by coming up short across the board. But while Republicans have noticed that the voting public is changing in ways that don't help the GOP, they may not have noticed that the electoral map has also shifted to their clear disadvantage.
