You know, Mark...this might actually be the very first election in which the Electoral College actually helps the Democrats. I believe that...if Obama wins...he'll carry several key states by razor-thin margins. If every state assigned electoral votes like Maine and Nebraska...using the Congressional District Apportionment system...it wouldn't have made any difference in any election to date. (It would have changed some totals, of course...but not the actual election results.) But this year might be different. If states alloted their electoral votes NOT on the "winner take all" system, there might be an actual difference this year. We'll see...
