As I posted....it is a version of PR via the electoral college, not PR as such, but being based on the poulation numbers in a state it then awards seats in proportion to the population level. Thus CA gets more than AK.
If that is not a version of PR then I am a monkey's uncle.
Anyway Jack I dont want PR. Only the minority parties in the UK are for it because it is to their advantage. Green and Liberals with a gleam in their eyes see their possible 10 and 52 seats,if only we were daft enough to adopt the system and end up with government by coalition. Remember the recent one.Chocolate fireplce come to mind!!
Why should constituencies in which only the two main parties compete, have foisted upon them parties which draw most of their support from places like Brighton!
