What happens to swing states if EVV is used?

2012 swing states
2012 presidential election results. The Republican (red) and Democrat (blue) Electoral College results are on the left. The same votes appear as represented by the Equal Voice Voting method are on the right.

Swing states (those electing a candidate with the narrowest of voting margins) distinctions would disappear. Almost every state would probably have close races. Notice that only North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming (all Republican); and Washington, D.C. and Vermont (Democrat) would have given all of their electoral votes to one candidate if Equal Voice Voting were used in 2016. The remaining 46 states would have awarded electoral votes to both candidates.
