But unlikely to become a reality.

You know what I think? Instead of working to eliminate the EC, we should instead work to make blue areas bluer and red areas purple then blue. Republicans have practiced the opposite through voter suppression. Super rich people on our side can do the bluer and red to blue push by investing in forward looking business startups in both blue states and areas of red and purple states that we want to become deep blue. Two perfect examples of where investment in new business made states bluer are Virginia and North Carolina, both states less that two decades ago were red bastions, now Virginia appears to be on it's way to irreversibly blue and North Carolina has become a purple state. Investment in red and purple areas will get us to where we want to be on the Electoral College faster that trying to change the Constitution will.
