Incorrect. The electorates in only 38 states are required to vote along with the popular vote, meaning the electorates in the other 12 are free to swing either way. This is how Bush won in 2000. Al Gore did have the popular vote. This is also how Obama was elected as the Democratic candidate as Hilary Clinton outnumbered him in popular votes.
