Actor and former Senator and former Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson is part of a bi-partisan effort to create a compact agreement among states to award all of their electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote, no matter who wins the state vote for president.
This is a "feel good" idea that has no utility or merit. Hillary Clinton and many other Democrats would like to switch to a popular vote. But ignoring the intent of our Founding Fathers is folly because they want to safeguard our Constitutional Republic, not undermine of dispose of it.
