So a few people are hot to abolish the electoral college in the USA. But Tex's us argueably purple and with trends in Kentucky, Virginia and even Mississippi of all places a lot if those red states are heading towards purple. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opin...0fa486-f116-11e9-8693-f487e46784aa_story.html Trump won by 80k votes in 3 states. 40k people change their minds he is goneburger. This is ignoring places like Arizona, Florida and other purple states. If the GoP lose Texas they're basically done. I don't expect this to happen 2020 but if the GoP is struggling in red states that's not good for them. Texas wasn't projected to go purple until 2028 or 2032. Doesn't mean you get complacent, Dems got Florida but the GoP recaptured it. But if the GoP self destructs short term or Trump accelerates existing trends how many liberals will still want to dump the EC? Long-term the GoP might be better off with proportional representation as they will need those votes in Texas, California, New York etc. Assuming they have any left post Trump.
