    The National Popular Vote proposal.  It circumvents a constitutional amendment, once states worth a majority of the electoral college votes commit legislatively to give their EV's to the national popular vote winner, the jig is up for the EC, yes it would still exist technically, but the selection of a majority of electors would be based completely on PV.
