So for Texas, we might assume that it would have gone 23/13 Republican/Democrat, with another 2 Republican votes, for a total of 25/13. Better than 38/0, but it also still gives Wyoming 3 electoral votes, rather than an absurdly minuscule 262,000 possible votes (number of registered voters in Wyoming) out of 157,300,000 registered voters nationwide.
No way in hell is this a good proposal. The districts are gerrymandered (with a few exceptions) to put as many Republicans in Congress as possible. If we adopted this, we'd never see a Democratic president again.
