Split ticket: An initiative to eliminate California's winner-take-all rule for Electoral College votes in the presidential sweepstakes is quietly making its way toward the June ballot.
The initiative has Republicans salivating and Democrats nervous. Instead of the winner taking the entire prize, the state's critical 55 electoral votes would be divvied up among the top vote-getters in each congressional district.
"If this change is made, it will virtually guarantee that a Republican win.."

Umm... just one thing, isn't the Electoral College mentioned in the Constitution? As such only an amendment the Constitution can allow the system to be changed. Wouldn't California be violating the "Supreme Law Of The Land"? Seeing as how a state referendum never trumps the Constitution.
