The plus side of allocating seats by congressional district, rather then by state popular vote, is that it means whoever controls congress will also usually control the presidency. Of course the fact that congress is gerrymandered is somewhat problematic....

Then again, if it was done by congressional district, suddenly you might see candidates campaign more widely, and the democrats might take some of these districts the republicans created with "thin" margins.
