Personally I am unhappy with an elctoral system that gives the decision making power to one state. A national popular vote system would be a fairer system.

No.  Every state has the power to decide the election!  The past 3 presidential elections have been very close.  Elections before then were much more lopsided.

Changing the electoral system would require a constitutional amendment which would also require 3/4 of the states to vote for the amendment.  And that is something that is not going to happen.  Because of how divisive politics are these days I cannot see any amendment to the constitution happening in even the distant future!
