National Popular vote is not the same as State Popular vote

I wouldn't use one problem as and excuse not to solve another.
I just bite off what I can chew, and keep eating until it's done.

The effort to have a national popular vote has made at lot of progress.
I think the election of the U.S. president can benefit from not rounding-off votes according to the electoral college.
This is one area where we may first be able to get rid of the winner-takes-all sub-tally; largely doing away with political party gaming the electoral system and ignoring a majority of states.

The electoral college can still be part of the republic structure, and the legislative branch can still be completely appointed.
