It shouldn’t surprise me, but by asking whether there’s a “conservative case for National Popular Vote,” owing to the wide swaths of (comparatively lightly populated) red states, HotAir is asking the precisely wrong question. We don’t select election law norms — or we shouldn’t — because they compel favorable political outcomes. We should select them because they create results that more accurately reflect the people’s will.
On that note, respect to our conservative commentator(s), who engage on that level. Even if we disagree, you’re asking the right questions.
