    Seems like you are forgetting about the Constitution. It specifies that for the House and the Senate the electors should be the same as the most numerous house of each state, and for the President the electors are chosen as the State legislature thereof may determine. Nowhere does the Constitution give Congress the authority to do what you are advocating. It seems odd that you are a professor of law, hopefully not Constitutional law.
