Battleground Iowa: Chester's frenemy Gronstal gives him the political finger one more time

Excerpted from this post at Battleground Iowa

There has been a lot of people up in arms over the proposal backed by
some Democrats to mandate that all of Iowa's electoral votes go to the
winner of the nation-wide popular vote. I heard a very interesting
discussion of this issue the other day on a certain local talk radio
program, you know the one... the one no one admits listening to, but
everyone does. Anyhoo, some of the callers argued that the Democratic
proposal really wouldn't change much. If we go with the new proposal,
Iowa's say in the presidential general election will be based on
population. It's really not that different from the old electoral
college system, with which Iowa's say was based on population because
our number of congressional representatives is based on population.
