It would have been even harder to ﬁnd more than 100,000 votes throughout the country, if the popular vote determined the outcome. Thus the argument of those supporting direct popular voting for president is that recounts and challenges would be less, not more, likely because the number of votes needed to change a national outcome would be much larger than the number needed to change the outcome in one state that controlled a large or deciding block of electoral votes.
