"Fortunately there is a way to improve this broken formula for the Electoral College too. It’s called the National Popular Vote. It doesn't require a constitutional amendment, instead it utilizes the ability of states to enter into compacts with each other to award each state’s electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote."

The NPV also has potential undesirable consequences. It may encourage faithless electors for a super majority state winner who loses the national popular vote. In a close NPV election, the results of every state would be audited and potentially challenged in court. A superior method is for every state to implement the RCV/Top-Two Electoral College Vote Proportional Allocation: http://fairelectionadvocates.org/index.php/campaigns/campaign-menu
