    One lever of resistance to this proposal has been Democrats belief that we were developing an electoral lock which might secure the election even if a less popular candidate didn't win the popular vote.  

    However, if some GOP controlled states succeed in creating hteir own electoral college lock, the workaround owuld to end the decisiveness of states in the Electoral College.
