Quick Hit: Popular Vote Or No?

By now if you are a liberal, progressive (if you prefer) or a rational Independent you see and feel that tragedy of allowing the Electoral College to award the US Presidency before the popular vote is counted. Clinton won the popular vote by 2.9 million votes, yet we sit every day in the midst of a horrific reality TV show called Trumpism.

Robert Reich, Dept. of Labor Secretary under Bill Clinton, published a two minute video about how to change the GO hold on the Electoral College.

Granted Reich's comments would be almost impossible to enact as we consider the majority GOP hold on state legislatures.
