For decades, polls have shown that a majority of Americans want to replace the Electoral College with direct election of the president by popular vote. Yet since the election of 2000 the issue has become partisan, so that a constitutional amendment would be unlikely to get the necessary supermajority in Congress. The National Popular Vote campaign is an effort to make the Electoral College obsolete without a constitutional amendment, by getting a critical mass of states to agree to allocate their Electoral College votes to the winner of the national popular vote.
