The only reason these demographic shifts control the Electoral College in 2012 is the accidents of history which arbitrarily group the EC votes into states. If EC votes were assigned by congressional district, then the winner of the House of Representatives would also win the White House. Two states already do that, and if the rest of states did it, then the demographic shift will not be the determiner of the presidency. Congressional district voting is better than a popular vote because once a candidate has won a majority in one district it will not benefit him to look for more votes in that district, the way Al Gore was doing in Florida.
