Why a Plan to Circumvent the Electoral College Is Probably Doomed | FiveThirtyEight: My personal view is that the Electoral College should be abolished (even if that means we’d have to change the name of this website).

And the purple states, which might otherwise swing the balance, have the least incentive of all to sign on.
