If Congress is sane (evidence says no), yes. -- however, it is also compatible with a nation-wide recount, systematic voting fraud, election day riots, and disenfranchisements, and solid questions of who the 'real winner is'. Under the current systems, as technically the electors are chosen by the states (and by the method chosen by the states), there is a lot of flexibility in case of something like "Bush V. Gore."
Section 3 of the current draft says: "The persons having the greatest number of votes for President and Vice President shall be elected." So the current draft clearly states that FPP shall be used. In my opinion, the current draft is a catastrophe because it would cement FPP into the constitution. Markus Schulze 16:16, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
