    keep dreaming. The winner of most states was known well in advance.

    lets change the vote mattering to from nothing to next to nothing. It is a dog and pony show for president unless you are in a swing state. Just look at the campaign spending in non swing states. In a lot of them it is near 0 if not zero.

    But come on thinking that you have any say in something other than a swing state.

    No president gives a rates ass about doing things for a non swing state. You have to look at nothing more than where some federal money goes. Swing states seem to get a lot more per their population than non swings states... I wonder why???

    GOP and swing states are the ones who lose out big time in a national popular vote for president.

    For president one vote should be worth one vote.
    California vote is worth next to nothing but a swing state vote is worth a lot.
