I know I have posted about this within this thread. My recollection is, if you proportionately divide the electors it has the same effect as going with the popular vote.@Kotromanic: Yes, I was talking about shipbuilding, dye production, and the like in 1787.
@Rodger: What about keeping the electoral college but getting rid of the winner-take-all system and instead making electors appointed proportionately? As in, if you win 55% of the total vote in a US state, you get 55% of that US state's electors rather than 100% of that US state's electors.
