Colorado Republican candidate for governor, Greg Lopez, would like the state to do away with the popular vote in which all votes are equal and replace it with an electoral college that would give more voting power to rural counties where Republicans perform better.


The Platform Committee of the Texas Republican Party has proposed a state-level electoral college, modeled after the federal system, which would check the rise of Democratic urban power and leave rural areas with more say in the governance of the state.


The draft platform says, “Be it resolved that the state legislature shall cause to be enacted a State Constitutional Amendment creating an electoral college consisting of electors selected by the popular votes cast within each individual state senatorial district, who shall then elect all statewide office holders.”

For a while I hesitated. But now I'm perfectly content calling them the anti-democracy party.
