Sounds like a formula destined for the SCOTUS at some point. Once you change from the current process and subsequently establish some formula like this, no matter how logical (or, given the mind of politicians because it is so logical), when it doesn't work for the losing side there will be a call to change it to their benefit. Stability and predictability is the best foundation for a successful governance. Every presidential candidate knows the formula to win and should campaign accordingly. It is not like the process is a surprise which is exactly what it will be once you change it.62.50% is the cutoff point at which the electors are going to be split 3-1 if there are four electors in total. Below 62.50%, the electors are going to be split 2-2 if there are four electors in total.
