User: What error in the election of 1800 proved the original system of the presidential electors to be flawed?

User: In a winner-take-all system, a candidate who wins the ____________ vote in a state wins all of the _____________ votes.

User: Candidates divide the 50 states and D.C. into all of the following groups EXCEPT which one?





Weegy: The National Popular Vote bill would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in the country. The bill changes the way electoral votes are awarded by states in the Electoral College, [ instead of the current 48 state-by-state winner-take-all system (not mentioned in the Constitution, but since enacted by states). Every vote, everywhere, would be politically relevant and equal in every election. Every vote would be included in the state counts and national count. The candidate with the most popular votes in the country would get the 270+ electoral votes from the enacting states. That guarantees the candidate with the most popular votes in all 50 states and DC wins the presidency. The bill uses the power given to each state in the Constitution to change how they award their electoral votes for President. Historically, virtually all of the major changes in the method of electing the President, including ending the requirement that only men who owned substantial property could vote and 48 current state-by-state winner-take-all laws, have been by state legislative action. The bill has passed 31 state legislative chambers in 21 states. The bill has been enacted by 9 jurisdictions possessing 132 electoral votes - 49% of the 270 necessary to go into effect. ]
