eliminating the electoral college now is unwise

1) unless more controls are placed on $ in campaigns, eliminating the EC will drive up the cost of elections giving more power to the money-men
2) the electoral college could actually help boost third parties, which most say they want
3) the EC is trending Democratic, the senate seems to be entrenched Republican. .thus the EC could provide some balance
4)proposals like the NPVIC may be attempts to divert from adding representatives or states
