As long as 70% of the people disapprove of the current system of electing the President, proposals to divide electoral votes by congressional district or proportionally will continue to pop up in selected states.

A national popular vote is the way to make every person’s vote equal and to guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who gets the most votes in all 50 states (and DC).

The National Popular Vote bill would not take effect piecemeal, but only when enacted, in identical form, by states possessing a majority of the electoral votes—that is, enough electoral votes to elect a President (270 of 538). When the bill is enacted in a group of states possessing 270 or more electoral votes, all of the electoral votes from those states would be awarded, as a bloc, to the presidential candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states (and DC). The bill would thus guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states (and DC).

The National Popular Vote bill has 364 legislative sponsors in 47 states. It has been signed into law in Maryland. Since its introduction in February 2006, the bill has passed by 11 legislative houses (one house in Colorado, Arkansas, and North Carolina, and two houses in Maryland, Illinois, Hawaii, and California).

Instead of being so RE-active to GOP tricks, it's about damn time that the DEMS pulled some tricks of their own; specifically, try and spread this to every state South of the Mason-Dixon. IF they were successful, in only HALF, think about what that would mean, in terms of the sizeable Black vote in the South that now is, in effect, nullified, because of the 'Winner-takes-all' Electoral College politics. THIS would be a way for their votes to count.

So, instead of being RE-ACTIVE, the Dems should take their fight to the GOP, because if it worked only partially in the South, they could effectively cut the GOP off at the knees, because, without the Solid South, they have nothing.
