The radical alternative is the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact—call it the “Compact,” for short. The most concise explanation: Rather than abolishing the Electoral College via constitutional amendment, state legislatures would change their laws to award their electoral votes to whoever wins the most votes nationwide, regardless of state-by-state results.
Not all of the states would have to agree. All that would be needed is enough states whose electoral votes add up to a majority. I hope it happens because the electoral college is a ridiculous mathematical system that allows the loser to become the winner.
It's really crazy how every election is decided by who gets the most votes except for the most important election of all and not since 1988 has a Republican become president with a majority of the vote. In this last election, Hillary Clinton was clearly the choice of the people, winning the popular vote by enough to fill up the Rose Bowl 28 times.
