exam notes

"Another way of looking at it: compare the Red Eleven with California, which has 54 electoral votes, just two more than their total, but 33,871,648 people, almost twice as many. Cali has 627,235 people per presidential elector; the eleven aforementioned states have 359,069 people per elector. Wyoming, the most overrepresented state in the union, has 164,594 people per elector -- barely a fourth of California's total. That's right, Wyomingans are almost four times better represented in the Electoral College than are Californians."
