On a side note--I have noticed a LOT of people voting this election based on who they do NOT want to put into office. Basically, "I don't like McCain but a vote not for him is a vote for Obama!" Or the other way around.

I would vote because a candidate would not have to pander to an entire state to get electoral college votes. If that candidate doesn't have a prayer in the state, he/she won't even bother. I also believe that the popular vote system would allow more candidates to run and have a chance at actually becoming president. IE: Ron Paul.
