Is not going to happen, any time soon no even in 2020, with the record of both parties in congress no party like to mess around with constitutional issues, American history tells the real story about that.
I don't know what is so hard to get about this...it has NOTHING to do with the US Congress, NOTHING to do with the US Senate. NOTHING to do with the SCOTUS. NOTHING to do with Presidents Obama and Trump. It is a state issue. In most states it will take a simple majority IN THAT STATE to pass and a GOVERNOR to sign it...that's it. Done deal. States totaling 165 electoral votes have ALREADY signed it into law. They only need to look at about a dozen states, and they have it. ALL of those states are either blue or purple. It's a lot closer to becoming reality than people think, and that is why it is so low keyed.edit on 29-11-2016 by Arizonaguy because: (no reason given)

No offense, but you're just plain and simple wrong. No two ways about it. If you indeed read that portion of the Constitution then you are not understanding what it is written or you are being willfully ignorant. It doesn't matter either way. Congress CAN NOT tell a state how to apportion it's electoral votes without an Amendment to the Constitution
