Only a few days after claiming to support a national popular vote on "60 Minutes," Donald Trump tweeted out his support for the Electoral College, calling it "genius."

Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere can see both sides of the Electoral College vs. popular vote debate, though they still support the Founding Fathers' design of the electoral college. The guys also discuss the grassroots effort to enact a de facto popular vote through the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, which has passed enough state legislatures to represent 165 of the required 270 electoral votes.

"When you see brilliance on the other side, you have to recognize it," Stu concedes. "And this is a brilliant approach. By the way, the guy who was speaking about it was a Republican. He's not even a Democrat. So it wasn't necessarily a partisan effort in this particular case."
