The state of Pa. wants to elect the president by popular vote in 2012. That may be the only way that obama can win a second term, if even then.
There is a major problem as it will require a Constitutional amendment which must be ratified by two thirds of the states. The only amendment that passed even nearly that quickly was the repeal of prohibition. That probably was due in part to Americans having a terrible thirst at the time.
It would appear that the left is grabbing for straws.
