Wasn't the 2000 Election Al Gore's to Lose?

The Election Is Kerry's To Lose

As Ty Webb once said to Judge Smails, "Don't sell yourself short Judge, you're a tremendous slouch." I don't think it's fair to say that Kerry will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, since I don't think he has ever had a decent chance. It's still Bush at 52.5% from my vantage point.

No, because Gore won by a popular vote, and the popular vote is what should be the result of the election, not some stupid-ass "electorial college".

Feel free to change the US Constitution on this matter if you have the votes. It is a free country.

But, please remember that if those had been the rules in 2000, perhaps Bush would have run a different campaign and not thrown away California since it didn't matter by how much he lost it. Your proposed changes also affect the game, not just the outcome.
