It helps Democrats in the electoral college for sure.

Indeed. Republican votes are heavily concentrated in States making up roughly 1/3 of the Electoral College, which allows all the bellwhether States to tilt Democratic.

That said, this phenomenon is less pronounced now than it was in 2008. In 2012, most safe-D (like NY, RI, MD) and safe-R States (MS, LA, AK) trended Democrat, while almost all the swing States (NH, CO, PA, WI, IA) had a slight R trend.
