42. The last paragraph really sums it up...

"The amendments are unlikely to pass since they require a two-thirds vote in both houses of Congress and then must be ratified by three-fourths of states.

Why? Because the Electoral College gives the small states..(those with far less population..like Wyoming, and North Dakota)..far more power than would exist if the amendments passed....Saying it another way. Wyoming and North Dakota are not likely to give up their power to elect the President to states with a large population..

..While it seems like the fair thing to do, Republicans in Wyoming and North Dakota are not fair...(The small states)....And that is the truth..OH>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

.............REPUBLICANS DON'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT BEING FAIR..........................................

I also like this 4th paragraph from another story about this from CNN:..................................................

Calls to abolish the Electoral College intensified in the aftermath of the 2016 election, when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won the popular vote but lost the presidency when Trump won the majority of the Electoral College. Similar calls were made in 2000, when former Vice President Al Gore also won the popular vote but lost the Electoral College to George W. Bush. Both losing candidates were Democrats.
