Republicans Push to Elect President by Candidate Receiving Least Amount of Votes

As the Republican Party continues its struggle to adapt its message to an evolving America, new proposals in several GOP-led state legislatures across the country would see the electoral votes of each awarded to the candidate receiving the least amount of votes in future presidential elections.

For Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan, the change would be a departure from the current system, which allocates a state's electoral votes to the candidate who gets the majority of that state's ballots cast in his or her favor.

"For too long has the majority in America enjoyed a larger share of representation in government. The time has come to correct this injustice by giving equal representation for all, or actually much more to far less," declared Ohio Governor John Kasich.

After being informed that, under his proposed new system, Tom Hoefling of America's Party would have taken the Buckeye State with 8 votes in the 2012 presidential election, Kasich announced that his state's proposal would be revised to instead reward its electoral votes to the candidate receiving the second most amount of votes.

If this soon-to-be-revised alternate system had been in effect in Ohio last year, Mitt Romney would have taken the state with 48% of the vote over Barack Obama's 51%, winning by over 250,000 less votes.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, who last week gave a speech imploring members of the Republican National Committee to stop being "the stupid party", criticized the plan today, suggesting that if enacted, voters would merely start voting for the candidate they don't truly support.

Responded Kasich: "Why would they do that? That's crazy."
