Serious question. Imagine the wannabe VPs also have to campaign in the swing states in order to get elected and the rest of the country. Imagine a ticket split for unpopular running for reelection Presidents by compensating with a VP of the opposing party? Also it sort is "more" democratic (in the like you voted for them sense).

1940, 1968, 1972, 1988, 2000, 2004, and 2020 would likely have split administrations at least. 2024 as well even if Donald Trump picks Kari Lake as his running mate.

I would love if voters could vote for the current presidential and vicepresidential candidates but as a free for all.

My idea would be to give each voter 2 votes; the winner of the state gets the presidential electors while the runner up gets the vicepresidential electors.

No doubt Bush/Bentsen would win in 1988.

Bro Bush without Cheney and Nixon without Agnew would be good for the country.

So you want to back to pre 1800 rules?  There's a reason Jefferson has that changed.
