@Matter True, but my idea could be done without changing the U.S. constitution, and by reducing the granularity of the races, it would decrease the likelihood of that happening. (Working on jerrymandering, and reducing the possibility of faithless electors would help too)
@murph you don't need to change the US constitution, there's this compact between states that would in practice make the vote be popular if enough states sign on
@Matter Couldn't that also disenfranchise voters, making each state winner-take-all, but for the collective group of states? If your state joined on, and voted overwhelmingly opposite all the other states in the compact, those votes would again not count? I'm not sure that seems better, in my opinion.
