Confused in Pennsylvania: Voters Against Proposed Law That Would Give Them More Clout

The Times-Leader

“Pennsylvania voters say stick to the winner-take-all
formula used in most states: Whoever gets the most popular votes, wins
all of the state’s Electoral College votes,” said Tim Malloy, assistant
director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

Malloy said the survey comes down along party lines. He said
Pennsylvania hasn’t voted for a Republican presidential candidate since
1988 and that Republicans see an advantage in having electoral votes
divided between candidates based on the individual congressional
districts they win.

“Pennsylvania voters think abandoning the traditional Electoral College formula would reduce the state’s swing state clout,” Malloy said in the Quinnipiac release.
