The EC is less of any mandate indication as is the overall popular vote.
Yet the popular vote can be skewed because of lack of participation in states that area solid lock to one direction of another.
A million people may not have voted in NY and NJ for the reason of the storm; yet it does not have any impact on the EC votes delivered.
Same in CA; lazy Dems do not get out to vote because they know their state is already locked up.
Republicans also realize that their vote for president is having no impact.
TX may be the same as CA in reverse.
Only incentive is for state and local issues.
