It's the States' Fault

The Electoral College is fine. The states are the ones that screwed it up by having "winner take all" elections. If states would award delegates proportionally, then everyone would be represented.

This could be solved by ballot measures or pressuring state legislatures. Much easier than amending the Constitution.

And that NPVIC is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of. That means that if your state votes 99% Red, but Blue wins the national vote, your state gives all the delegates to Blue. You've just thrown out 99% of your states' votes.
