Electoral College: Nearly impossible for McCain to win the presidency

Look at the situation

The fact is, Obama could lose OH, FL, NC, and VA and still win the presidency. BUT... if he wins any ONE of these states, it's pretty much game over for the old man. Considering the newest Opinion Research Poll has Obama up by 2 points in OH, and a tie in VA, it looks bad for McSame. Even strong red states are now polling Obama with a slight lead in ND, NV, CO, and NM

Maybe this time, the smart people will get to elect the president.

To make every vote in every state politically relevant and equal in presidential elections, support the National Popular Vote bill.

The National Popular Vote bill would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states (and DC). The bill would take effect only when enacted by states possessing a majority of the electoral votes (270 of 538). When the bill comes into effect, all the electoral votes from those states would be awarded to the presidential candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states (and DC).

The National Popular Vote bill has been approved by 21 legislative chambers (one house in CO, AR, ME, NC, and WA, and two houses in MD, IL, HI, CA, MA, NJ, RI, and VT). It has been enacted into law in Hawaii, Illinois, New Jersey, and Maryland. These states have 50 (19%) of the 270 electoral votes needed to bring this legislation into effect.
