Why The GOP Electoral Vote Gambit Won’t Work

Following up on a post last week, The Fix reports that, “A Republican-backed plan to change the way certain states allocate electoral votes has fizzled as quickly as it sprung onto the national consciousness. The slate of upcoming 2014 governor’s races is a major reason. … the Republican governors in these states (including OH, MI, WI, FL, PA), have distanced themselves from such a proposal … recognizing that they would carry immense political risk on the eve of reelection campaigns that already promise to be challenging.”
