National Popular Vote: States Further Alienated
The National Popular Vote Movement is now at 132 electoral votes. This means that in 2012, the presidential candidate with the most popular votes will get a block of 132 electoral votes. This movement is not done. It is entirely possible that by the time the 2012 elections are held, the state by state breakdown of votes will not matter. What does this mean? If you live in CA, DC, IL, MA, MD, NJ, VT, WA or any other state that may pass the npv legislation, your electoral votes may go to a candidate that your state did not vote for. Your vote could be stolen from you. Check out the npv website and work against this legislation in your state.
