Your comment is perplexing for two reasons:

  1. For all modern Democratic presidents, the Electoral College had the same result as the popular vote.
  2. I ended this article with the following paragraph: While this subject of the Electoral College is an interesting point of conversation during a presidential election, the reality is that Republicans will only consider changes when the system no longer works to their advantage. By that point, the Democrats will have lost their incentive to enact change. For all our worship of the Founding Fathers, why do we always seem to forget that Washington warned against dividing into political parties?
  3. Nowhere in the article did I call for the elimination of the Electoral College.

4. An amendment to eliminate the Electoral College is not needed in order to enact a result based on the popular vote. Please see: https://www.nationalpopularvote.com/.
