Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Party representation by congressional district within a state has no bearing on allocation of electors granted to each state.

FAQ: Each party's caucus in each state nominates and elects its slate of electors tied to its party's candidate for POTUS. This function is ceremonial except that electors of any party are not obligated to pledge their vote's to the the candidate elected by popular vote. The general population does not elect them; the number of votes cast does not alter their number. Voters in each state elect one POTUS candidate, one set of electors.

Do you understand the electoral paradox established by the US Constitution? HRC did not.

The number of electors per state is fixed, independent of party affiliations within each state.
"Electoral votes are allocated among the states based on the Census."
(D) are interested in counting greater numbers of live bodies (citizen, resident alien, or neither) for the 2020 census in order only to increase the number of districts and electors allocated to a state. Doing so necessarily subtracts from complementary states' House representation, because the total number of House representatives is fixed at 435.
"Every state is allocated a number of votes equal to the number of senators and representatives in its U.S. Congressional delegation."

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
