Not via federal action. The only way I see it happenning is via the gimmick currently being attempted where enough individual states apportion their electoral votes along voting % rather than winner take all.

Not by federal action, I agree. Congress can hardly do anything constructive these days. Regardless, it's a stupid and antiquated system, and needs to be abolished.

I take that back....the gimmick being pursued is that states would individually give all of their electoral votes to the candidate who wins the national popular vote. If states representing more than 50% of the electoral college votes (270) did this it would render the current process moot.

Personally I have no problem with the electoral college one way or the other.
