I guess they can make the amendment by getting 2/3 of the states to pass it and they can call a convention.

I wonder which idea will get to 2/3 first -- this popular vote idea, or the "convention of states" that's been passed by 15 States so far.

Neither in our lifetimes.  Probably.

They should get together.  They'd have 30 out of 33 States (there is NO crossover presently).

Though the national popular vote wouldn't need 33 to effectively take effect, they just need to get to 270 electoral votes.  I wonder if that would withstand a court challenge.

I think you'd have an interesting (and expedited) court fight if a candidate from the winning party (according to that state's ballot) won the state, but the state directed the electors to vote for the other candidate.
