So if I vote for Paul in Utah, but Obama got more votes in California, my vote wouldn't count?
Seems rather draconian to me.
Conversely, if I voted for Romney (in Utah) and someone voted for Obama in California, but the turnout was bigger in Utah, the Obama votes would not count?
People look at this as if it will only benefit the DNC, but if you looked at it as benefiting any political party over another, therm you might have people rethinking this.
Just imagine Bush manipulating the electoral college instead of Obama.

You seem to forget Bush did manipulate the electoral college. Remember Gore won the popular vote but Bush got the office because of the electoral college.
