(“According to a new poll, 55% of Americans favor abolishing the Electoral College. Unfortunately, because of the Electoral College, 55% is less than half.” — Seth Myers)

We’re getting there.
(But as I’ve mentioned in the past: don’t worry! Each state would still have two senators, so the sparsely populated, overwhelmingly white, states would still have far more than their proportional share of power overall, and a disproportionate say in the composition of the Judiciary Branch.)
