Electoral College Changes?

Nebraska and Maine both have a system where the winner of the popular vote in each congressional state gets an electoral college vote and the winner of the state's popular vote gets two more.  VA will vote on the measure next week and Michigan, PA and Ohio (all swing states) have it on their legislative calendars.  Right now this obviously helps the Republicans, but a lot of people who want direct election of the president see it as closer to that.
