Re: Nebraska -Why Winner-Take-All System Could Make Donald Trump President
Why? Nebraska.

Despite being one of the most Republican states, Nebraska awards its electoral votes by Congressional district instead of winner-take-all. Thanks to this system, Omaha's electoral vote leans blue: Obama won it in 2008, and Biden won it in 2020. He's likely to win it again this year.

California would never do this. New York would never do this. And as long as that's the case, neither should we. This is completely fixable. Nebraska's legislature can act to make sure their state's electoral votes go towards electing the candidate the VAST majority of Nebraskans prefer. There's already a bill ready to go - LB764. All Nebraska has to do is put it up for a vote.

Re: Nebraska -Why Winner-Take-All System Could Make Donald Trump President
Take a moment to absorb what happened today. This is truly monumental. The Nebraska electoral college quirk has bothered me since 2016. Charlie Kirk took it upon himself, marshalled the forces today and in less than 12 hours the Nebraska Governor is onboard. Why wasn’t this solved by the RNC under Ronna Romney 5 years ago.
