That's amazing. In 1976 Texas and the rest of the South was blue and California and Illinois were red. California didn't turn blue until 1992.

It's good to see that not long ago candidates and issues mattered. Not it seems about 75% of states have already decided how they will vote in each election including 2016.

A few hundred thousand folks, in some specific areas make the call.

It sucks.

Or a electoral college reform... Maybe X vote % in a state gets certain amount of the electoral votes for that state... or award the electoral votes by US representative districts then give the other 2 electoral votes to the winner of the states popular vote.

Looking at 1912 reminded me how much of a boss Teddy was. Told both parties to f off and ran winning that many states.

I still think something like that could happen in the pacific northwest + Cali. with the right type of big player
