FairVote's new report: 98% of attention to 15 states

As the Electoral College prepares to convene on December 15, FairVote has released a powerful new report on where the major party presidential campaigns devoted time and resources.  More than half of all resources were devoted to four states, and more than 98% devoted to only 15 states, leaving nearly two-thirds of the country as effective spectators to the election -- and less likely to vote. But with the National Popular Vote plan making headway in the states, 2012 promises elections where all Americans can hold their president accountable.
