Some states have a work around: “The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.” The signatory states agree to cast their electoral votes for the popular vote winner, regardless of how their own state actually voted. Colorado just joined the list but there is much work still to do – many more states to sign up. Plus, will the states actually obey this requirement when the magical moment arrives? Would a blue state cast its electoral votes for #BenedictDonald if that was the result compelled by the Interstate Compact? Alternatively, Democrats can move to rural Republican states and overwhelm the local populations with new move-ins.
