Maine is proportional (better) and Nebraska is Congressional District based (horrid).

In the former, each EC is awarded based on percentage of the vote int eh state and that represents people much better than Winner take all.....in the later, gerrymandering will affect the outcome of the presidential elections and will map 1-1 with who controls the house.
