The issues that I see with this new development
- Gerrymandering of districts has made a mockery of fairness in the states.
- Will create a constitutional crisis at some point and violence in the streets.
How would this effect the election? I'll let someone else post all the numbers. But, here's an example from what the Republican senate did in Virgina. Obama won the election in the state, But due to gerrymandering, Romeny would have been given 9 EC votes and Obama 4 EC votes.
None of this is illegal nor is it rigging anything, which would be illegal.
I think the Democrats, 'er well at least Chicago-style ones, should be dealt a heavy blow where there was voting fraud for Obama due to more votes than registered voters. The Ds love lazy voters who won't put much effort into registering on their own, won't make an effort to vote on election day when they could, and those who want to steal from others. In other words they recruit and aid the criminal demographic.
This is the pot calling the kettle black.
