electoral methodology:

PC just mentioned this "initiative" to me at lunch. i pull up slate and the first thing i see is this article. this could be seriously bad news, particularly as voters often have little understanding of the implications of what they're voting on when it comes to referendums (myself included).

i am, however, intrigued by the mentioned "national popular vote" plan. makes tons of sense. even with partisan resistence, it seems at least plausible you could get states with half the electoral votes to sign on. and that's all you'd need.
