I realise that it has gone on for decades, but why is there so much hype about the national popular vote? It is meaningless. The president is not and has not ever been the president of the American people. He is the President of the Unites States. The states choose the president. That's all there is to it. No use crying over popular vote. Any change to the Constitution would be a monumental shift as it would be the final step in turning the US from a federal republic to a national democracy. Can't see that EVER getting 2/3 of both houses of Congress or a national amendment convention called by 2/3 of the states AND 3/4 of the states or their legislatures. Ain't gonna happen so we might as well quit paying any heed to the national popular vote. If it is not liked the people of the states need to work on getting the method of choosing electors changed.
