The fact is, the States don't

The fact is, the States don't have to allocate ANY EC slots per the popular vote. They can pick the guy standing down on the street corner as their choice for president, doesn't have to be someone that was on the ballot, doesn't have to be someone that ANYONE voted for. And this IS the way the system was designed. They popular vote is merely the State Legislature asking the People, "Who would you LIKE for US to elect as president. And they are not committed in ANY WAY to abide in the People's OPINION of such. It is the STATEs that elect the president, not the people.

IF the states were to do something like this, then the People would begin to pay a LOT more attention to who they elected at their State level, and things would begin to work from the bottom up, they way they were originally intended to work.
