The biggest problem with the writer's plan, as I see it, is the science of GERRYMANDERING. Obama won the popular vote fairly handily and the Dems gained a few more Senate seats, but the Republicans kept a sizeable, though smaller, majority in the House. Does anyone think that this situation would have occurred if not for gerrymandering? As the R's won big in 2010, they carved up the House districts in many states to maintain their majority. The boundaries are now set until the 2022 election. Allowing a vote to each CD rather than the current system is a recipe for more Presidents to win who have lost the popular vote. Not good for our country's stability.
