Abstract

Earlier this year on this blog, Fabrice Barthélémy, Mathieu Martin, and Ashley Piggins showed that under the Electoral College system, the arbitrary size of the House of Representatives, not the voters, can determine the outcome of a presidential election. They referred to work by Nicholas R. Miller to explain this ‘House size effect.’ Here he further explores the issue and writes that, even without ‘Senate’ electoral votes, the winner of the electoral vote could still depend on the size of the House.
