Hell yeah, let's change the rules mid election year.

That would be such a poor move.

Good or bad, what matters to him (and other Republicans) is that they see it as benefiting their billionaire patrons.

Yes let’s take the one thing the state famously does right and make it have the same problem every other state does.

Nebraska Gov. Jim Pillen (R)

Close to right I would say. If the districts are gerrymandered the Republican could get all of the electors except the at-large ones. Better rule would be to award electors proportionally.

Or even cut the middlemen and directly elect your president ?

This is the best summary I could come up with:


Jim Pillen (R) endorsed switching the state to a “winner-take-all” system for Electoral College votes on Tuesday, a change that would bring the state in line with the rest of the country and could tip the 2024 election.

Only Nebraska and Maine assign Electoral College votes by district.

In most elections, Republicans take two and Democrats take one of the state’s votes, though the third is tightly contested.

State legislators introduced a measure to implement the winner-take-all system in January, which Pillen endorsed.

“I call upon fellow Republicans in the Legislature to pass this bill to my desk so I can sign it into law.”

If the bill were to go into effect for the 2024 election, it could cost President Biden an Electoral College vote.
