Republicans finally realize that they cannot win the presidency with their current, stridently right wing crop of candidates. They intend to rig presidential elections in a number of states so that Republicans can win the electoral vote without winning a majority of the popular vote. In a number of states, Republicans want to allocate the electoral vote by the winner of each congressional district. If that scheme were enacted in each congressional district, Romney would have won the election in the electoral college, even though he lost the popular vote by over 4.5 million votes.
They are not satisfied with suppressing the vote because it backfired on them and probably turned out more democratic voters than they suppressed. Once again, the Republicans have shown themselves to be anti-democratic ideologues who care more about power than people or the good of the country.
