There is a movement to
get rid ofbypass the electoral college system and award all electors to whoever wins the popular vote.
New York and ten other states have signed on, but it would not take effect until states representing 270 electors had signed on.
It's a start...
It is a bad idea to go by popular vote only, as it makes it so smaller states that should have a say don't.
Only large population centers and the densest populations would get focused on by politicians and a good portion of the country would be ignored.
The following states and cities, all off the top of my head, would get the most focus.
Now neither list is complete, but by focusing on the above a candidate would use his campaign funds very efficiently and get the most bang for his buck
Most of the rest of America would be largely ignored, and the system was designed to prevent that
It is a good thing that we have an electoral college
