I'm not in favor of getting rid of the electoral college, but I don't feel strongly about it and if it's voted out then I'm fine with it.
But I find this particular method to be extremely distasteful and wrong. For all the complaints that the electoral college devalues the votes of some individuals in a state, this would do so even greater. If 80% of a state went towards one candidate, but the popular vote went another way, then that states population would essentially have been deprived of their ability to vote in the federal system of note in this country. That's amazingly wrong in my mind.
If you want to get rid of it then go about the actions to get rid of it. Actions like this however just seem like foot stomping temper tantrums that set up more harm than good.
