If Romney wins the popular vote but loses the electoral college..

Would it be time to abolish the electoral college for good?

No, but I hear some states are talking about a proportional division. Why any state of significance would do that, however, is sort of a mystery...

As to the OP, if Romney decided to target 4-5 small but winnable "blue" states (in addition to real swing states) at this point, it could make a difference for him....say MN, WI, IA, or NV. Could be the difference if the polls have truly tightened as much as the Right insists they have.
So you do not think the polls have tightened? Here is today's no toss up map, which you have referred to in the past:

I have to admit I was shocked at those numbers, it was a big change from just a couple of days ago.

Why does New Mexico vote blue? Illegal alien sympathizers? Tham and NH seem a little out of place on the map.

Gerrymandering is illegal. Proving the case can be legally challenging though.

New Mexico has a very popular Democratic Governor I believe, so Obama might be riding on his endorsement.

NH is very much an independent/libertarian state, they tend to go there own way on any given election.

Those two states do stand out on the map, as they are surrounded by opposites colors.

Only thing that would do would be to negate their vote by slitting it. If you have an even number of EC votes, they would split right down the middle unless one candidate had more than 60% of the votes. I like the district system in place in Maine and Nebraska much better.

I'm a Democrat, but regardless of my political beliefs, I was for it then as well. (Though I was eight years old.) I think it's an archaic system that needs to be abolished or altered, (in a way that the states split their electoral handouts, as what's been mentioned in this thread.)

Unfortunately, all of the above would take a constitutional amendment, and likely a united outcry from the public. (I was wondering if this was a possibility if the latter occurred again.)

Its time to abolish the electoral college whether or not it effects this election. I personally am not happy letting voters in Ohio and Florida exclusively decide our presidential elections.
