The US Presidential result using D'Hondt

Video on How D'Hondt works


 


Website used to calculate the sharing out of the electoral college votes http://icon.cat/util/elections#

This was simply to see how the election result would be if another format of sharing out the electoral college vote was used, currently in nearly all the states it is a winner takes all affair. So can be one vote more than anyone else and get all 55 votes.

Now the system as the video shows is used for the European Parliamentary elections, and is devised for more parties. But it does feel like a fairer system. But it is not without its own odd results in Iowa there was a good 10% plus gap between the 2 candidates yet still split the seats 2 each. For the system to truly work maybe you need each state to have an odd number of college votes the person/party with the most votes gets the most college votes.

It is just as an exercise not a statement about the result, as numbers interest me more than politics. Would be interested in your thoughts.

I have done the breakdown state by state so simply click on the state name to see how the numbers were worked out for that state.
