In every election I've seen, politicians only come to California with their hand out and give us nothing in return. In the meantime, "battle ground" states are flooded with billions of dollars to sway their votes because of the competitive split of voters . Desperate politicians pay attention to those states and focus all their promises and money on them. Democrats take California for granted and Republicans write off the state. If we could reallocate how our electoral votes are distributed, the government might actually pay attention to us and spend some time and money here. Our citizens deserve the same attention and quality of life as the "battle ground" states. As a rough example, if the state voted 60% democrat and 40% Republican, the democratic candidate would get approx 33 electoral votes and the Republican would get 22 electoral votes. Even losing the state gives more electoral votes than Ohio or Pennsylvania and we see the extraordinary amount of time both politicians spend in those states. MAKE THEM EARN OUR VOTE. Make them spend time and money and promises on our state. I'm sick of being taken for granted.
