NPR's Jennifer Ludden talks with political editor NPR's Ken Rudin about an initiative in Colorado to split representation in the Electoral College according to the popular vote. Currently, the winner takes all Colorado's electoral votes. This is the practice for every state, except Maine and Nebraska. The disputed 2000 election makes clear that altering the current system could have a huge impact on presidential politics.
