Swing States in US Elections

What is Electoral College? "The Electoral College is a process, not a place. The founding fathers established it in the Constitution as a compromise between election of the President by a vote in Congress and election of the President by a popular vote of qualified citizens."(More at National Archive)

 

Electoral College 2012

"The recent decennial census altered States’ weight in the Electoral College. Following each census, the United State Census Bureau conducts a process called reapportionment during which States are assigned a number of seats in the United States House of Representatives based on population. These changes to the way Americans select their president warrant an updated explanation of the system in time for the 2012 presidential election." (Source: EAC)
