“The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC) has already been passed by 12 states with 172 Electoral College votes. Only 98 more votes are needed. It appears likely that at least 4 – and perhaps as many as 9 – more states will be looking at the NPVIC in 2019. A presidential election by national popular vote is supported by a majority of voters in America, and it is both easier to achieve and closer to being achieved than most people know.”
-Michael Tarnoff, Chairman of Make Every Vote Matter.

“As in the past, however, a majority supports changing the way presidents are elected so that the candidate who receives the most total votes nationwide – rather than a majority in the Electoral College – wins the presidency.”
-Pew Research Center.

“Let The People Pick the President.”
-New York Times Editorial Board.

“I would rather have a popular [vote] election.”
-Donald Trump, President of the United States.
