Just because only two out of 50 states do it that way right now, doesn't mean that such an amendment would be unpopular with the other 48. States don't want to do it unilaterally, because that'll decrease their relative power, but it might be OK when you're forcing everyone else to do it, too.

That said, such a system would also make it possible to gerrymander Presidential elections, which would not be a good thing.
