The winner take all system is decided on a state by state basis. There is at least one state that allocates by percentages of the vote. The main problem with the winner take all versus percentage system is that it leads to a 2 party system with any extra parties becoming 'spoilers' by pulling away votes from one or the other party. A percentage rule of electoral votes allows for multiple parties within reason.. (IE a state with 5 electoral votes would at best allow for 5 parties... )
