|One problem with the maps that display the electoral-college results
is that almost invariably they are the familiar flat projection map. This
map exaggerates the area covered by an electoral winner in large, empty
states such as Wyoming and diminishes the area covered by the electoral
winner in small, crowded states such as Massachusetts.
An electoral-vote proportional map shows the same area for the same
number of electoral votes, and tends to balance out the distortions
created by using an inappropriate map.
