It turns out that no change to the Electoral College other than a national popular vote would alter that statistic much. Not splitting up each state's EC ballots according to state vote shares. But the NPV compact could do it.

In knowledge-intensive industries, it is not unusual for 15% of revenue to be dedicated to R&D. Even in consumer goods like potato chips, R&D is 1-2%. In education, its likely less than 1/10 of one percent. Congress can and should do more.

Hmm I was thinking it’s analogous to random assignment of students to schools at the individual level. Here, judges are the schools.
