Will the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact reach majority in the Electoral college before 2030?

Question

The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact is a an agreement among states to award all of their electoral votes to the candidate with the highest popular vote, conditional on enough states agreeing that the total electoral vote count would secure a majority in the electoral college. In effect, the agreement means that if enough states sign on, the popular vote will determine the outcome of presidential elections. So far states representing 196 electoral votes have signed on, which is 73% of the way to the 270 required to obtain a majority in the Electoral College.

This question resolves positively if at least five reliable media sources report that states representing at least half of Electoral College votes have signed the NPVIC before 2030.
