The slate winning the most popular votes is the winner. Only two states, Nebraska and Maine, do not follow this winner-take-all method. In those states, electoral votes are proportionally allocated. Can a candidate win the electoral vote, but lose the popular vote?
Since 1836, statewide winner-take-all popular voting for electors has been the almost universal practice. Currently, Maine (since 1972) and Nebraska (since 1996) use the district plan, with two at-large electors assigned to support the winner of the statewide popular vote.
Nebraska has five electoral votes in the Electoral College, two from the state at large, and one each from the three congressional districts.
Democratic superdelegates are free to support any candidate for the presidential nomination. This contrasts with pledged delegates who are selected based on the party primaries and caucuses in each U.S. state, in which voters choose among candidates for the party’s presidential nomination.
To become the presidential nominee, a candidate typically has to win a majority of delegates. It’s then confirmed through a vote of the delegates at the national convention. But if no candidate gets the majority of a party’s delegates during the primaries and caucuses, convention delegates choose the nominee.
