WHEN will we fix the Electoral College?!?

The Electoral College has been changed many times before - it needs to be modified again.    No, we don’t need an Amendment to The Constitution.   See the National Popular Vote bill.   

Update:

    We just need to go back to proportional EC votes rather than winner-take-all state races. With people fleeing blue cities in droves for the interior the election maps won't tend to look so segregated in the future anyway. But depriving the less populous (and better armed) states of a say in national elections is only going to aggravate the kind of people who stormed the Capitol. We'd get a better result by going proportional so that blue counties in red states get a say and red counties in blue states get a say. Letting four cites choose every President forever is just a recipe for more partisan fighting. What you're suggesting would be just vindictively poking a hornet's nest and that might sound good to someone who believes history just started in 2016. But the powers in this country shift back and forth every four to eight years and if the other side had power you wouldn't be saying this. It's always important to be able to see down the road and not just react to the present.

    I make a point not to guess what people are thinking. The EC has changed many times because the population changes. Many relevant items for the founding fathers do not apply today. I can submit pages toward this. The idea of EC needs to be revisited. Every new country that used the US Constitution as a blueprint has revised to exclude the EC, utility outdated. Also, see 17th amendment.

    The reps are 4 for 4 winning the presidency w/o the popular vote ... turn the tables once and the EC good as gone.

    false.  your prize bill will never pass the state legislators, nor will the Constitution be amended.

    Do you really want a one party dictatorship with the popular vote? Only way I 

    would support the popular vote is if you ended the 16th and 17th amendment 

    along with making it so the president has 8 years instead of 4 years. 

    By doing the changes I suggest is the only way to prevent a one party dictatorship.

    The Electoral College is fine, but we need to fix the Dominion Voting Machines or throw them out.

    Only with another system that protects against what Founding Father ,James Madison called , "the tyranny  of the  majority -- which was the reason for having an Electoral College in the first place.

    When you have 2/3 of congress, and 34 of the 50 states.  In other words, not in your lifetime.
