The New Electoral System?
Instead of having all of a state's votes when a candidate holds the majority, i propose a new plan.
Half of the system will consist of the original plan, if the candidate wins the state, they win half of the votes. (in cases of uneven number, like California, the winning candidate will receive that extra vote)
The remaining half of the states votes will be decided in the way we run the presidential system now, only with counties, where to decide the last remaining votes of the whole state the candidate must receive the majority of the votes of the counties.
This plan will ensure better accuracy, for some candidates win the election by popular vote but not the electoral vote, therefore they don't win the presidency.
P.S. Obama '08! (just thought i'd throw that in there)

That counties-within-states thing is flawed. Under that regime Harris County, Texas (population 4 million) would be equal to Loving County, Texas (population 55).
