18. OK, so NPV does NOT require a majority of the NPV -- only "the most popular votes?"
But NPV requires states to give their electoral votes to whoever wins the popular vote. It does NOT do away with the electoral college which WOULD require a Constitutional amendment.

So suppose there's no electoral college majority because there's no popular vote majority? How would NPV "guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states (and DC)?"
