I must have been asleep at the wheel on this. The attack on the Electoral College method of electing a President is being attacked in a very clever way. Under the National Popular Vote (NPV), States would sign a contract agreeing that, no matter how the people of that State voted, all of the Electoral votes would go to the winner of the national popular vote. That means, for example, if 100% of the voters in Maine voted for Trump, too bad because the Maine Electoral votes would have gone to Hillary because she won the popular vote.
Every where we turn, someone, usually seditious and Socialistic Left bastards are trying to game the system. Given the Maine (and other stupid State's) votes on Ranked Choice Voting and Minimum wage, we may well see this bit of political poop coming our way. The video below indicates that the NPV people already have contracts for 165 electoral votes. These are all or mostly Liberal/Democrat States which is reason enough to oppose the plan.
