If we switched to election by popular vote 46 out of 50 States might as well stay home because the other 4 most populated States would decide the election.

As a compromise, I suggest the electoral votes get allocated according to popular vote by state. The states still have their influence, and the citizens have theirs. Winner take all is a really poor system.
