Electoral College Is Democratic, Not democratic

Same in Maryland. If you don't live in the I-95 corridor between Baltimore and Washington, DC you are irrelevant. If a state is allowed to either award electoral college votes by congressional district or by statewide popular vote, why would a state like Md. or PA ever change the way they award the electors?
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.
