I get 12% using the same site. California gets 55 electoral votes out of a total of 538, or a little over 10%. The difference between 10% and 12% is not so dramatic as the one in Wyoming. They have .17% of the population and .55% of the electoral votes.My state, California, has the largest population by a long shot. Over 36 million to Texas' 23 million+ in second place by the 2006 count. Does anyone think that the country is willing to allow a single state so much power in the election?
Approximately 8.2 percent of the population is in CA by those numbers.
