“Pennsylvania voters say stick to the winner-take-all formula used in most states: Whoever gets the most popular votes, wins all of the state’s Electoral College votes,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
Malloy said the survey comes down along party lines. He said Pennsylvania hasn’t voted for a Republican presidential candidate since 1988 and that Republicans see an advantage in having electoral votes divided between candidates based on the individual congressional districts they win.
“Pennsylvania voters think abandoning the traditional Electoral College formula would reduce the state’s swing state clout,” Malloy said in the Quinnipiac release.
