It's been worked out that splitting the distribution of electors the way Maine and Nebraska do would still have given Bush his victory in 2000.

But the compact to throw all a states electors to the winner of the national popular vote already is approved for states with 200 of the 270 electors needed to come into effect. It could well be sorted by the next election.

As for England and what would be left of the UK I can only see genuine reform coming in the wake of Scottish independence. So maybe not that far off.
