@nony - I understand what you’re saying, but the electoral college is meant to protect the small states.
Why should larger states swing elections on their own? In that case, elections could be determined by just a handful of coastal states with the largest populations.
I don’t think that seems fair. The electoral college is a way of ensuring that each state is represented in the final vote count, and that each state – even the smallest one – can make a difference in the final outcome.
