The electoral college is a time-honored, logical system for picking the chief executive of the United States. However, the American body politic has also grown accustomed to paying close attention to the popular vote. This is only rarely a problem, since the electoral college and the popular vote have only disagreed three times in 200 years. However, it's obvious that reforms are needed.

The fundamental problem of the electoral college is that the states of the United States are too disparate in size and influence. The largest state is 66 times as populous as the smallest and has 18 times as many electoral votes. This allows for Electoral College results that don't match the popular vote. To remedy this issue, the Electoral Reform Map redivides the fifty United States into 50 states of equal population. The 2010 Census records a population of 308,745,538 for the United States, which this map divides into 50 states, each with a population of about 6,175,000

So then could it end in a 25-25 tie?

Sure.

But it can end in a tie now.

That's cool as f*ck man. I'm a geography major and I'm extremely interested in demography and stuff. Great find though.

I hope you have better teachers than I did when I was in school... Human Geography put me the fug to sleep. It can be a very interesting topic when well taught.

Gamble at UNCW was great. So far, my profs here at UNC have been pretty good; although kinda boring, they teach well enough.

I would say just the opposite. Tidewater is full of swamps, Charlottes gets a lot of cool mountains and rivers. :)

Yeah, but didn't you meet him once at a conference or something?

Really chill prof, while being extremely helpful. He knows what students go to and he doesn't act like his class is the only class students are taking, like most professors do.

As someone who looks at maps all day this is pretty interesting to see. If you ever get to see that show on the History channel about how the 50 states got their shape, that's pretty interesting too.

Umm... idk if I've met Gamble or not. I know Dr Hines that's still there, she helped me get started in this industry... and I've met Dr. Hall.
