This is not a new Idea, and I think one state in the east already does it.
But I do not think a lot of states will do this, and none for the reason stated in the story. there are three kinds of states, blue like California, red like Texas as it is all the states electoral votes go to the red or blue candidate so don't expect any change.
Then there are swing states like Pennsylvania that could go either way, The GOP is in charge now and they think (Because politicians are optimist) that they will win the state and their candidate will get all the votes - why would they split the vote and have their candidate get less?
another thing, both candidate and parties do a lot of stuff for swing states because they want their votes, splitting the electoral vote mean both get half so why bother.
This is not going to happen But it was a good story :)
What do you think about the special election in New York? Does in mean one of the wings have left the Democratic party? In another post I suggested several were lose
